Sarah Michelle Gellar, Melissa Joan Hart and Milla Jovovich were considered for the part of Julie Barnes, but they all passed until Claire Danes eventually got cast. Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris were offered the chance to direct the film, but turned it down in order to concentrate on making music videos instead; Scott Silver got the job.
The Mod Squad received negative reviews by critics. Rotten Tomatoes reported that 3% of critics had given the film positive reviews, based upon a sample of 63. At Metacritic, which assigns a rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the film has received an average score of 16, based on 21 reviews.
The film was nominated for a Razzie Award for Worst Screenplay, but lost out to another television show turned movie Wild Wild West. It was also a box office bomb, grossing only $15.4 million out of its $50 million budget.
