What the Critics say
Todd McCarthy Scum-bucket airheads
James Berardinelli Despite a generous helping of sex and other depravity, Schrader proves unable to hold our attention. The culprits are numerous but dissecting the problem doesn't change the result. The Canyons is a sleazy soap opera that fails primarily because it gives us no one to care about and no reason why we should be interested that we don't care.
Peter Travers What we have here is dead on arrival.
Tomatometer Oppressively misanthropic and ineptly made, The Canyons serves as a sour footnote in Paul Schrader's career -- but it does feature some decent late-period work from Lindsay Lohan.

Staff evaluation Bleak film has unlikable characters, much sex, little point.
