What Criticker Users Are Saying...
manamana6671 - "Very original, laugh-out-loud hilarious, and wonderfully written. I enjoyed the hell out of this movie, especially because the main cast of characters (esp. the main protagonist) was so likeable and endearing. The message at the end is very hard-hitting and relevant. I really hope a lot of people see this movie. It does not deserve to be forgotten." - 89
natebarrios - "For a movie about crossing and clashing identities and personalities, DOPE perfectly encapsulates just that. Tonally it dances between comedy and drama like hip-hop breakbeats, in what could have been a mess. It's an old school flavor seen through a contemporary lens. Its image and charisma is unique -- exactly what more teen comedies and even indies should be. Funny, romantic, tense, eye-opening, and downright wonderful to watch." - 85
