For a while, the girls' personalities seem almost interchangeable, but that's part of the texture. Katie Chang gives the leader a ripe...

New York Post

By Kyle Smith
In other words, this punkish, sleek film about beautiful kids wallowing in purloined Prada could have been written by a grumpy 65-year-old...

Movie Nation

By Roger Moore
As with her best films, Coppola is utterly at ease in this milieu and it shows.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Richard Roeper
The Bling Ring is a sly, often hilarious and at times sobering look at the 21st century fascination with celebrities.

Uncharacteristically loose and deceptively frivolous, The Bling Ring is as much of an attack on The Hills Generation as any of Coppola’s...

Time Out New York

By Joshua Rothkopf
The Bling Ring, Sofia Coppola’s deceptively shallow but ultimately fascinating latest, is animated by that spirit of we-don’t-give-a-f**k...

May be the most exquisitely crafted movie ever made about a bunch of nitwits. [10 & 17 June 2013, p. 110]

The Bling Ring traces an intriguing feedback loop of which it is knowingly a part: a movie that affords its subjects the very immortality...

The Telegraph

By Robbie Collin
Coppola’s uproarious and bitingly timely film feels every inch a necessary artwork.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
The Bling Ring is the cinematic equivalent of the vapid, superficial kids it features — all visual panache and minimal substance.

I liked it, but not as much as I hoped to

By finman66
Good performances from the young actors, and a great from-real-events premise, but it got somewhat repetitive in the middle, with too many too-familiar scenes of characters out-of-control when given...

What I learned from those Bling Ringers

By hbcourtright
After months of build up on my facebook feed with pictures of Emma Watson in a sexy, in the middle of dancing, pose picture, I was excited. I am a big fan of director (thankfully no longer actress)...

If You're a Teenager or a Coppola Fan - GO!

By Promise_Rhodes
I enjoyed this film. Sofia Coppola really evoked emotions towards these kids that I felt were appropriate for the situation. You leave feeling like they were a bunch of dumb-asses who worshipped...

It was ok

By tncholland
If it weren't for Emma Watson, we wouldn't have been interested in this movie! We will go see anything she is in, just adore her. I've heard that she agreed to do this film because of her...

don't see this!!!

By SpintoMan
I am sorry I cannot un-see this movie. Wayward kids, alienated (really? how original!) decide to become crooks. They steal money and jewelry, they fence the stuff for more money. They spend the...

For teenagers...Boring for adults

By lbfirstlady
The movie is about a group of high-schools teenagers on a theft binge. To them, it's a lark. Eventually, they are caught and are charged with all kinds of crimes. Basically, it's a morality lesson...

Sofia Coppola Created An Intense Film

By JLFerg
I knew the story behind this film as I live in California and remember the news story. I had expected excellent direction and acting in the film. What I hadn't expected what how uncomfortable I would...

Not a bad movie but expected more.

By illcamino
The move is decent and the performances are great, especially Emma Watson but it was lacking a real visceral sense of emotion. The only time I felt anything was during a car accident. I feel like...

Nicki Is a Total Hottie!

By mwdillon69
Emma Watson Rocked as Nicki. I think it was a good movie and I'd recommend anyone from LA to go see it since it happened right here!...

PURE BLINGY BRILLIANCE

By HavenNutt
Sofia Coppola, you hit the nail on the head with your brilliant self. Emma Watson, you are a hilarious genius. I don't understand why the best movies get limited releases, barely any advertisement,...
