More Info:
  • Gregory Ellwood

    The unexpected comedy bits, great music and an insightful point of view all contribute to making "Dope" something special, but it simply wouldn't fly without Moore.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    The good certainly outweighs the uneven. Dope is both intelligent and crowd-pleasing.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Dope isn’t perfect — it’s got a couple too many endings, and it loses the romantic subplot for a distressingly long time. But it moves with amazing energy, the dialogue and soundtrack and imagery a constant stream of pop-culture references, in-jokes, and digressions.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    The fun momentum of Dope’s breakneck plotting and snappy dialogue easily overcome any momentary attack of earnestness.

    Variety Full Review
  • Boyd van Hoeij

    Bouncy, with snappy dialog to spare and a great young cast headed by breakout star Shameik Moore, this is a crowd-pleaser from start to finish.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • An Banh

    Dope provokes a discussion about the dichotomy between societal expectations of the race-defined self, as well as the democratic American right to be who you want to be — but it's an unfocused and tangential one, limited by the trappings of comedy and the flash of the hip-hop aesthetic.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    It’s a movie about a geeky teenager living in the Los Angeles hood, and something about it, or rather everything about it, feels real.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Throughout the film Famuyiwa, who also wrote the script, uses split screens and backs up the film and jumps around and freezes the action, but he's not showing off. He uses these techniques to tell his story, and doesn't overuse them to the point of annoyance.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    Part of what makes writer-director Rick Famuyiwa's Dope so fresh and joyous is that in many key ways it's not new at all.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The tone of Dope is very interesting — funny, but rarely stupid-funny.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    Dope has energy and smarts and a heart in all the right places.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Whatever definition of "dope" you prefer, it applies to Rick Famuyiwa's movie of the same name.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    A rambunctious, sexy, funny, irreverent whirlwind of a movie, Dope doesn’t seem like it has much discipline or focus, but its frantic forward momentum and haphazard mixture of styles, although demonstratively entertaining, shouldn’t distract from a rather pointed political message about race in America.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Dope has thrilling moments and flies like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, but its caustic intelligence glints fast and furious.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    If Dope were as earnest as Malcolm seems to be, you might expect it to be a bit of a bore. No worries on that count, though. Mr. Famuyiwa has a sleeve full of aces.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • John Bleasdale

    Essentially a caper movie, Dope defies the wearisome social realism that is often used to depict lives at the bottom of the social ladder. The script is verbally smart and the various contrivances and tangles of the plot are amusingly played out.

    CineVue Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Famuyiwa dabbles in the teen sex comedy, the urban gangster story, and the fish out of water scenario. He gives us suspense, gross-out humor, a cute romance, and a sermon about the status of race in America.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    Newcomer Shameik Moore shines with geeky gusto in a breakthrough role in the coming-of-age comedy/drama, which tackles racial stereotypes and 1990s culture as a kind of spiritual descendant of "Friday" and "Do the Right Thing" while still featuring a singular voice.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    So many movies play it safe and predictable that you have to give it up to Dope for making consistently bold moves — even if they don’t always pay off. This vibrant film is a bit of a mess, but it’s a beautiful one.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Kevin C. Johnson

    Dope is funny, slick and sharp.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Famuyiwa reminds viewers not to believe — or worse, internalize — the hype, and he provides a great deal of cheeky, infectious fun in the process. Put another way, Dope is the bomb.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    Dope has more characters and subplots than it knows what to do with, and its performances are all over the place, ranging from Clemons’ and Revolori’s charismatic turns as second-banana goofballs to Roger Guenveur Smith’s stylized impression of a local millionaire, so vampiric that he might as well be slathered in German Expressionist makeup.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Just know that Famuyiwa keeps the action spinning with vibrant speed and rare sensitivity. He's made a comedy of social expectation that plays like an exhilarating gift.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Thanks to a witty, fast-moving script (also by Famuyiwa) and a sensitive performance from the newcomer Moore, Dope helps us see how a young black man coming of age in America faces complications unforeseen by the smugly entitled high schooler played by Tom Cruise all those years ago in "Risky Business."

    Slate Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    It’s easy to root for Malcolm, to admire his pluck and share in his enthusiasm. It may be a little harder to buy what he and Dope are selling.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Messages about learning to be comfortable in one’s own skin and the hypocrisy of the ruling class are delivered with genial humor and mild pokes.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Mark Feeney

    Full of energy and attitude, it’s the sort of movie that likes to startle, if not necessarily shock. No wonder Dope was an audience favorite at Sundance last winter.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Odie Henderson

    Dope alternates between being shockingly tone-deaf and surprisingly on-point. Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Saring, often funny comedy.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Dope has a hint of “Virginity Hit” and “Project X” about it, but it goes much further than those trangressive and sometimes violent romps. It challenges its characters, its community and us to think beyond cause-and-effect, stereotypes and expectations. It doesn’t always work, but when it does, Famuyiwa is onto something both funny and thought provoking.

    Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    The tone is fast and funny, with a modern “Risky Business” or “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” vibe, but there’s an additional layer that stems from the violence of the neighborhood.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Happily, what Dope does well, it does extremely well—namely letting Malcolm, Diggy, and Jib hang out together and navigate the world on their own terms. All three leads are charming, and together, they convey a real sense of camaraderie, the kind that only develop between misfits who find each other.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    As a comedy, the film isn’t especially funny, and as a screwball drug caper a la “Go,” it’s raggedly plotted, with ridiculous coincidences popping up everywhere.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    Dope is a mess of styles and mixed signals, a pulp fiction that mostly tend to its loyalties to other cine-odysseys through the streets of Los Angeles.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    Dope is, in the end, just another unfunny grab bag of stereotypes. Don't believe the hype.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Kevin Harley

    Famuyiwa’s teen pic mixes a cocktail of crowd-pleasing vim and political punch, lent charm and conviction by Moore – a star in the making.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Ian Freer

    A smart riposte to the ’hood drama stereotype. Dope is funny, stylish and mostly exuberant fun.
