Duff carries off the lead role with confidence and grace, exuding a kind of fresh-faced naiveté not often found in other young female stars these days.

Proves Hilary Duff is here to stay. Is it corny at times? Definitely, but sometimes corn is good for you.

The music in Raise Your Voice ... manages to bring home what the uninspired script doesn't: Something in you dies if you don't express your musical talent.

It's particularly good at capturing that time of life when you simultaneously believe everything is possible and that each tiny misstep is the end of the world.

Duff at 17 is so easy to take. She radiates without smugness, like the blessed offspring of Marilyn Monroe and a virile marshmallow.

What Hilary Duff will do when she grows up is anybody's guess, but for now she's the Duffinator, and things could be a lot worse.

It's easy to play the middle-aged critic and...dismiss the proceedings as trite, but for the... young teens seeing it, [it] will seem... relevant to their own lives.

Ms. Duff's screen presence and the film's infectious high spirits will make this piece of fluff appealing to young moviegoers without conveying any sinister messages.

It's a sweet and touching West Coast Fame, though it lacks that 1980 musical's manic energy and excitement.

As refreshing as it may be to see Duff shed tears, drop the 'like' and wear shirts that don't show off her midriff, this is more of a baby step than a giant leap forward.

I cared. I cared. Then it was off to therapy. After all, the film's production company, for gosh sakes, is called ChickFlicks. ChickFlicks!

So pure at heart that, even with its over-the-top moments and cliches, one is willing to forgive the flaws and admire all that it achieves.

Made for tween girls.

Vapid story, shallow concept, bad acting, unoriginal characters, and a climax so cheesy I had to shut it off to keep from kicking in the screen.

Duff's sunny disposition makes her a likable movie presence, but I've yet to see anything from her...beyond a 'let's put on a show' high school drama club enthusiasm.

In watching the anemically manipulative Raise Your Voice, one wouldn't mind calling for a touch of well-needed laryngitis.

It's 'Fame,' 'Footloose,' 'Peyton Place,' and 'Hilary Duff's Greatest Hits' rolled into one moist glob
