Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A dinner of week-old turkey legs and stale mead would be more fun than this Ren Faire-set rom-com disaster."
‑ John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
"Only Ann-Margret, as the fair's reigning queen, retains her dignity."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"Cheeky and underwhelming, quickly to be filed under 'forgettable films.'"
‑ Susan Granger, SSG Syndicate
""Faire" is as predictable as boils on a plague victim, and its romantic complications are generic, but the script is amusing and, zounds, it's nice to see Ann-Margret in the supporting role of a RenFest monarch."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"A TV movie-grade romantic farce that's practically medieval in its cornball conventionality."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"Peaks with its animated opening credits."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Marshall does manage a breezy, good-natured tone toward this oft-mocked cultural phenomenon that allows for eye-rolling and smiling in equal measure."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"A prime contender for 2011's biggest cinematic embarrassment."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"If you don't like the word 'penis' but crack up at the use of 'wang,' 'ding dong,' 'wenis' and 'wiener,' this is your movie."
‑ Matt Pais, RedEye
"Finding a fresh setting for a comedy is difficult, but a Renaissance fair is too broad a target."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"We've seen this kind of thing before; it was old when Bill Murray did it in Meatballs."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"Avoid this one like the pox."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"Some name talent probably won't be putting Scott Marshall's 2009 stinker on their résumés."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix
