  • Rachel Saltz New York Times (Top Critic)
    Forced irony or klutziness? Too often that's the question you ask of "Hick," which makes the answer all too clear.

  • Chuck Wilson Village Voice (Top Critic)
    Too odd to be funny, too cold-hearted to be tragic, Hick is an infuriating muddle.

  • Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times (Top Critic)
    It contains some effective performances, it does a good job of evoking bereft and empty landscapes, but what is it for? Has she learned anything? Have we?

    Ambles back and forth between tomfoolery and strained seriousness.

  • Rex Reed New York Observer (Top Critic)
    The movie careers downhill with the speed of an unhinged kangaroo with one foot.

  • Lou Lumenick New York Post (Top Critic)
    A smarmy little road movie about a Southern teenage girl losing her innocence the hard way during the Reagan era.

  • James Berardinelli ReelViews (Top Critic)
    Hick wants to come across as trippy and offbeat but its bizarre, surreal approach is more off-putting than effective.

  • Mark Olsen Los Angeles Times (Top Critic)
    Mostly plays like some creepy-perv fantasia looking for mileage from the mature-beyond-her-years presence of young star Chloe Grace Moretz.

    Hick is worth the effort -- and it does have some genuinely witty writing.

    And so it came to Chloe Grace Moretz, as it must to all child actors: puberty.

  • Matt Pais RedEye
    Recognizes that kids can't expect the grass to be greener but comes too close to suggesting that you can expect others to mow your lawn.

  • Shannon M. Houston Paste Magazine
    Though Hick promises danger, sex (or at least sexiness) and adventure, it delivers a dry tale lacking in real action or intensity.

    Director Derick Martini basically gives up on storytelling about 20 minutes into the feature, hoping a grubby atmosphere of creepy men and vulnerable women is enough to patch the abyssal holes in the plot.

    ...shows that the era of the redneck road flick isn't over, but by God should be.

    Runaway teen faces violence, harsh reality in mature drama.

    Hick was intended to be a calling card for all parties involved to point at as evidence of their talent and bravery; instead, it's a black blot of shame for everyone who had a part in its making.

    Doesn't deserve to be remembered as much of anything.

  • Stephanie Zacharek Movieline
    In the end, the story's potential emotional complexity - the idea that we might want to protect a young character while also recognizing her waiting-in-the-wings sexuality - ends up in a bland gray area.

  • R. Kurt Osenlund Slant Magazine
    It doesn't take long to gather the influences trickling through Derick Martini's Hick, an aimless tumbleweed of a road movie if ever there was one.
