Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Too many exchanges are sitcom-smooth."
‑ Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Sitcom-ish but lively and amusing ensemble comedy that treats its intelligent, emotionally conflicted characters with respect..."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"The movie's low budget shows, but the competent (many of them also sitcom veterans) cast keeps things moving smoothly."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Middleton ... has assembled a clique of familiar, broadly drawn characters, but her film manages to rise above sitcom status, thanks to their sassy repartee."
‑ Megan Turner, New York Post
"Don't let the title fool you into dismissing this as another Steven Seagal action snooze."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"An embarrassingly amateurish and cloying comedy."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"A light, engaging, well-carpentered film, with a quick wit and a sense of character just deep enough to lend some weight to the laugh lines."
‑ Dave Kehr, New York Times
"The acting can be subtle (Payne) or broad (Alexander), laid-back (Morgan) or laid on thick (De Sousa). Yet these performance variations matter less than the honesty of the situations."
‑ Lawrence Toppman, Charlotte Observer
