"From the beginning of the text, Psychology at the Movies draws the reader in and provides a clear direction and foundation to be built upon through the remainder of the text. Young's ability to do so, not only allows this text to be read and applied in various fields, but also could be used in any level of study. From the movie buff who seeks to learn about their past time to psychology and other social science students, this text offers a balanced amount of both breadth and depth." (The Journal of Popular Culture, 29 August 2013)

"In sum, Psychology at the Movies offers the basis for a useful survey course in film and psychology, packaged in an engaging format. As Young asserts, "Once you start looking for it, you can't escape psychology in the movies" (p. 6). And he adds, "Sometimes . . . a movie stays with us, and we reflect on it--for an hour, a week, a year or a lifetime" (p. 114). With the increasing prevalence of massive open online courses (MOOCS), Young's seminar has potential to interest a very wide audience." (PsycCRITIQUES, 6 February 2013)
