Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Though deliciously rude and crude, '3, 2, 1 ... Frankie Go Boom' possesses a surprisingly sweet heart."
‑ Kathleen Murphy, MSN Movies
"A vibrantly vulgar comedy that never hangs around to admire its own cleverness."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Provided one submits to its base level of intentional ridiculousness, there's some wacky charm to be found in this low-budget comedy of fraternal bickering."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"It's unbearable to sit through at times, watching decent actors flounder with intentionally ridiculous material, working themselves into a lather to serve writer/director Jordan Roberts's clumsy sense of humor."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"A sub-Apatovian farce that tries way too hard ..."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Tragically unfunny, Frankie is occasionally elevated by some of its gifted and game cast, but the film's nasty, comedically incoherent script limits its potential."
‑ Joel Arnold, NPR
"Toxic brother drives so-so comedy about mortifying video."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"The film never really goes soft, as Jordan Roberts never loses sight of the fact that these toxic nincompoops are authentically bad for one another."
‑ Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
"A noisy stab at wacky wrongness that starts with reasonably plump possibility as a dispatch from the frontlines of viral video embarrassment hell."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"Both actors somehow stay grounded despite all the shenanigans. Hunnam, in particular, is quite adept at playing against his movie-star looks."
‑ Randy Cordova, Arizona Republic
"... provides a few solid sitcom-style laughs before the bickering and mayhem become repetitive and the film simply runs out of gas."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com
