      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Hot Summer Nights is easy on the eyes and clearly indebted to some great films, but its strengths -- including a charismatic young cast -- are often outweighed by its uninspired story.

      Tayvin C I just wanna know the truth…………….. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/03/24 Full Review Trey W Watched baby Chalamet. Meh. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 11/29/23 Full Review Tamara K While this is a fairly boring movie a young Timothee Chalamet and a great soundtrack make it worth the watch. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/13/23 Full Review Jnos S I don't understand why it's so underrated. Compared to the overrated Licorice Pizza, this is also a pretty good story. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/31/23 Full Review Joe M Under rated. Actually real good movie. Surprised I never heard about it. Great story. Great cast. Kinda sad. Overall, great movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/23/23 Full Review Jeffrey P Didn't plan on watching this but it came on and never made me want to turn it off. Better than expected and avoided getting too emotional or sentimental, which is what I was expecting it to do, so it did surprise in some regards.

      Tomris Laffly Time Out While Bynum captures the year of Terminator 2: Judgment Day and its transitional early-'90s fashions with melancholic vividness, his paper-thin story of minimal character development ultimately resolves to a shrug. Rated: 2/5 Aug 8, 2018 Full Review Kristen Lopez Spectrum Culture Hot Summer Nights will appease fans of Chalamet by his presence alone, but this is a movie that plays like a CW-infused take on the nostalgic drug drama. Rated: 2/5 Jul 31, 2018 Full Review Ignatiy Vishnevetsky AV Club Hot Summer Nights is both groan-inducingly contrived and vapid, its talented young cast wasted on an incoherent script-less a web of betrayal, greed, and adolescent desire than a few dangling threads. Rated: C Jul 28, 2018 Full Review Cory Woodroof 615 Film The Timothee Chalamet Experience rolls through town with A24's moody 90s teen drama Hot Summer Nights, or, Kewl Largo, where Goodfellas meets The Sandlot... Feb 11, 2022 Full Review Danielle Del Plato Floated Alternative Culture Magazine A twenty-second long sequence of a sticky and moist exchange of a lollipop is one of the most immersive sequences I have seen in some time. Rated: 5/10 Dec 6, 2018 Full Review Nate Adams The Only Critic In the end, Hot Summer Nights leaves the viewer with an an intoxicating aftertaste and a glow of enthusiasm long after the credits roll.
