What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Glitzy look at vacuous Hollywood teenagers.
Laetitia Pople Hoekom hét ons hier gekom?
Todd McCarthy Celebrity thieves.
James Berardinelli I can't say that The Bling Ring is without merit or purpose, but I can say that it's not entirely successful.
C. Fuchs Much of The Bling Ring ends up feeling glitzy but too shallow, sort of like the celebrity world it's exploring.
Tomatometer While it's certainly timely and beautifully filmed, The Bling Ring suffers from director Sofia Coppola's failure to delve beneath the surface of its shallow protagonists' real-life crimes.
