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

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

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

Time Out New York

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

Sofia Coppola's Interesting Insight into Teenage Obsession with Fame

By tgwtdt456
Sofia Coppola dishes out another intriguing, yet slow- burn indie flick. This time, Sofia delves into a much more hard- hitting story of teenagers infatuation with glitz and glamour. Sofia has her...

Funny and entertaining

By qzx999
A great movie from start to finish - funny and very entertaining throughout. Great performances throughout with a well constructed script and excellent cinematography. Ready to see it again!!...

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...

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...

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)...

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...

Meh....

Love Sophia Coppola...Lost in Translation amazing, Somewhere very very good. This film could have easily been a Lifetime movie. It had some strong acting performances, but I don't really see...

I don't regret seeing it, but I'll never watch it again.

By skysayzrawr

Shallow story about shallow thinking

By orcasong
While the acting is solid, how hard it is to play doofless teens who have read too many fashion magazines and too few text books? This movie is OK only because it is based on actual events....
