Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Amazon Women on the Moon is irreverent, vulgar and silly and has some hilarious moments and some real groaners too."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Satirists are in trouble when their subjects are funnier than they are."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Anthology comedy that is not without its charms"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
"Like Kentucky Fried Movie, the premise ... is a series of comedy vignettes ... nowhere near as clever or funny, although it certainly has some laudable moments."
‑ Brian Mckay,
"Slim pickings."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"More hits then misses in this collection of skits. To my knowledge, the Loch Ness Monster is still on the loose."
‑ Michael A. Smith, Nolan's Pop Culture Review
"A guilty pleasure!"
‑ John Venable,
"Like an R-rated episode of "Saturday Night Live," some of the bits are drop-dead hilarious. Others are pin-drop pathetic."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"An anarchic, often hilarious adventure in dial-spinning, a collection of brief skits and wacko parodies that are sometimes quite clever, though they're just as often happily sophomoric, too."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"The material is uneven; some of it is very funny while other skits fall flat."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Not many funny skits in this anthology."
‑ Fred Topel,
