Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
I wanted to hug this movie. It takes such a risky journey and never steps wrong. It creates specific, original, believable, lovable characters, and meanders with them through their inconsolable days, never losing its sense of humor.

By Owen Gleiberman
A buoyant, funny, and disarmingly humane comedy of beautiful losers in revolt.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
Smart, surpassingly odd, extremely funny and mysteriously endearing at the same time.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
Let the unsettling secrets of this outrageously funny and steadily engrossing meditation on the life of two high school misfits after graduation catch you by surprise. It's that good.

New York Daily News

By Jack Mathews
Funny, insightful, unpredictable and blessed with pitch-perfect performances, Ghost World is one of the year's best movies.

Miami Herald

By Rene Rodriguez
A unique bond still develops between the two outcasts, leading to an unexpected resolution that ends this subtle, deeply humane movie on an ambiguous, but unmistakably hopeful, note.

There's a loneliness at the heart of this world, and Ghost World, that's really touching -- and a bit scary, too.

Boston Globe

By Jay Carr
Whatever portion of the alienated teen angst championship Thora Birch left unclaimed after ''American Beauty,'' she nails down brilliantly in Ghost World.

San Francisco Chronicle

Bests most other teen comedies right off the bat. If you got a kick out of "Crumb," this film will crack you up.
