For once, though, a teen movie where obnoxious nerds and general dimwittedness usually reign supreme, displays refreshing wit and recognizable emotions. That is no small feat.

A fun, fast comic-thriller that serves the talents of Cryer magnificently

Why is it that good movie ideas are always being interrupted by goons with guns, and obligatory chase and fight scenes, just when we would actually be interested in how the characters were really feeling?

Hiding Out never once approaches funny. Were it not for the parade of cliches and stereotypes stolen from various high-school comedies, I'd have assumed that this movie was a straight drama.

An enjoyable and highly amusing teen flick
Allison Babka
Man, I LOVED Jon Cryer in this movie... perhaps even moreso than in "Pretty in Pink." Sick? Maybe.
Steve B.
Great disguise, Cryer -- EXACTLY the sort of look you want when you don't want to call attention to yourself.
Anthony Valletta
Sustained by Jon Cryer's charisma, this proves to be a fun outing.
Michael Gildea
You won't hear about this movie when you watch I Love the 80s.
