    The movie is a flop. Its more about taking down the bad guys rather than focusing on the dancing and music. Scenes are all over the place and placed in any slot, It has a bad script that never seems to go anywhere, Actors that might as-well never read a script in they're life and it teaches your children no morals but standing up to street gangsters. And no, Teens absolutely hate thisThe movie is a flop. Its more about taking down the bad guys rather than focusing on the dancing and music.

    I want everyone to listen to me-this movie is complete dog s*** (pardon my language, but this is the nicest thing I could think of to say about this mess) The writing is painful, the direction makes me want to vomit. And the acting...oh God, the acting. I am easy on kids, but this was inexcusable. It seems like Stewart Rafill came up with the worst actors he could find, and put them onI want everyone to listen to me-this movie is complete dog s*** (pardon my language, but this is the nicest thing I could think of to say about this mess) The writing is painful, the direction makes me want to vomit. And the acting...oh God, the acting. I am easy on kids, but this was inexcusable. It seems like Stewart Rafill came up with the worst actors he could find, and put them on screen, to sing pop songs that make Justin Bieber look like Michael Jackson. I am reading the positive reviews for this film by metacritic users, and I think to myself, it's not the critics bashing this movie because they're adults, or they don't get the humor. THE HUMOR SUCKS! Throughout the film, I was just angry. I almost want a DVD of this garbage so I can light it on fire. There is no reason for this film to exist. For all those people that are giving this movie good reviews, listen to me-go check yourself into a mental health clinic, watch The Godfather, something, because your perspective of films being good is messed up. there is something wrong with your brain, or your being paid by the studio. This movie makes me sad. Why do movies this terrible exist? And for you idiots/employees of the studio that think that I'm just some critic that doesn't understand what a good film is, I want you to listen to me. I do write reviews on the internet. www.peppersperspectives.blogspot.com is my address. And one more thing-I'm thirteen years old. So I am thirteen and know that this sucks. Any adults or younger children that like this-I will never be your friend. Because you are stupid. This movie is just so ungodly awful that I want you to see it just so you can see how low filmmaking has gone. 0/10 (the rating I gave it here, and on my blog) Expand

    This film was excellent! Finally a clean, good, and funny family movie. The acting and singing were amazing but the best part of this film were the hidden values in the script. I enjoyed every moment and it truly brought a tear to my eye in a great way.

I hope that this fim gets recognized and the cast get proper recognition for their hard work. Expand

    Off the wall? Friend, you don’t know off the wall until you’ve seen five twelve-year-old girl singer-dancers cover the Tina Turner/Phil Spector epic “River Deep, Mountain High” in the screwball kiddie dance comedy, Standing Ovation.
  2. The cast is full of fresh-faced unknowns ready for their close-ups. Most likely to succeed is Kayla Jackson, an almond-eyed dreamer, as Brittany, anchor of the Ovations and of her family.
  3. Standing Ovation is an innovative film in the sense that every minute or so it comes up with a different way of being annoying. Moreover, it often goes for a layered effect, in which it's annoying in two or three ways simultaneously.
