      Nell Minow Common Sense Media Missed opportunity full of dubious messages. Rated: 1/5 Dec 25, 2010 Full Review Robert Koehler Variety Stuffed with attitude but just as hackneyed as the original. Dec 23, 2003 Full Review Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle Another uninspired remake of a movie that was never crying out for revisitation in the first place. Rated: 2/5 Dec 21, 2003 Full Review Cole Smithey ColeSmithey.com "Love Don't Cost A Thing" is loosely based on the 1987 teen comedy "Can't Buy Me Love," and fails to improve on that tepid movie by using a milieu of black high school students. Rated: D May 12, 2009 Full Review Film Threat Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 6, 2005 Full Review Mark Collette Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas) High school films don't have to be dull or juvenile; this one suffers tremendously from the former. Rated: 0.5/4 Sep 20, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews
