Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film has a pleasant spirit and lively dialogue, and what's more, seems to be coming from a specific cultural and geographical location."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"A lighthearted comedy about the outing of a bride-to-be and her five-year relationship with her maid of honor."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"With the preordained outcome of telegraphed in its opening scene, all that's left to enjoy of this mean-spirited melodrama, are politically-incorrect laughs at the expense of a bizarre cross-section of California kooks."
‑ Kam Williams, Upstage Magazine
"It wrings almost no laughs or tears from this seemingly idiot-proof premise, taking 45 yawn-filled minutes to introduce its collection of severely stereotyped characters, whose conflicts then play out in excruciatingly predictable fashion."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Suffers from a malady common to tiny indies of the let's-put-on-a-show variety -- it strains for irrepressibly nutty, but lands squarely in annoying."
‑ Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times
"Poorly shot, badly timed, lamely idiosyncratic, and annoying."
‑ Kim Morgan, Reel.com
"If there is a single phrase that should strike fear in the hearts of innocent moviegoers, it is 'writer-director- producer-star.'"
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"How do you stop it, a movie that labors as stridently for sitcom feel-goodness?"
‑ Jan Stuart, Newsday
"Unfortunately, the guest list includes a gaggle of clichés."
