Critic Reviews for Never Goin' Back

All Critics (59) | Top Critics (16)

Augustine Frizzell's debut forces us to spend nearly 90 minutes in the company of two unbearably dumb protagonists.

August 10, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

"Never Goin' Back" is happily silly and low-down and willing to indulge in gross humor, while presenting a story about friendship and about the consequences of growing up with no money or prospects.

August 9, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

"Never Goin' Back" owes much of its watchability to the actresses' natural chemistry. Together, they paint a portrait of adolescent friendship so vibrant that it makes up for much of the movie's structural flaws.

August 8, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Anchored by a pair of effervescent and authentically lived-in performances from Mitchell and Morrone, "Never Goin' Back" is a sweaty, silly summer adventure, and a sincere shout-out to the power of best friendship.

August 8, 2018 | Full Review…

A rude, crude, rambling, raucous, sometimes quite gross and often very funny and endearing slice of lives we don't often see portrayed on the big screen.

August 8, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

These two actresses have really lovely chemistry with each other.

Audience Reviews for Never Goin' Back

At two different points in the movie Maia Mitchell's character Angie says things like, "I would kidnap you and take you to Mexico before I let you go to Arkansas, dude!" and then when talking about sad places that should replace screensavers of exotic locations the first thing that pops into her head is Wal*Mart. What does the girl have against Arkansas? I live in Arkansas. Angie's hate for the Natural State has nothing to do with my rating though; that would have more to do with the fact a character holding out on taking a shit is a major plot device.
