When a group of teenage social misfits befriends jaded journalist Campbell Babbitt (Coogan), who's on assignment in their small New Hampshire town, they each find themselves searching for meaning and truth in their crazy, mixed-up lives. But as Babbitt gets to know these eccentric kids better--Lucy (Duff) in particular--their hidden secrets begin to rise to the surface, changing each other's lives forever.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: What Goes Up squanders the charisma of Steve Coogan with a lazy screenplay, contrived plotting, and overall poor production.

Cinema em Cena
Pablo Villaça

O humor melanclico estabelecido pelo estreante Glatzer funciona na maior parte do tempo, sendo beneficiado ainda pela impecvel performance de Coogan.

Common Sense Says
High school drama tale is too edgy for young teens.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the film delves into mature subject mature, including sexuality, death (suicide, for one), abortion, and teenage and middle-age ennui. Most of the teenage characters, and many of the adults, too, are pushing their boundaries and defining themselves, sometimes in ways that seem destructive. One girl appears to flaunt her sexuality, especially at older males. There's also a fair amount of swearing. By way of foreshadowing, astronaut Christa McAuliffe's death during a failed 1986 takeoff looms over the storyline.
