Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In general, the film feels like all setup and no punch line."
‑ Miriam Bale, New York Times
"... manages an effective mix of slapstick and sentiment that can't quite sustain itself at feature length."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
"Delivers a steady stream of laughs and an accurate depiction of sibling rivalry, contributing to a funny, freewheeling effort that's missing focus, but finds an unusual personality of its own."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Even when bits go thud, there's a brittle, unsentimental wit about kin's inexplicable tug that's hard to ignore, and the leads - game for some surprisingly sublime bits of physical comedy - eventually wear one's anti-charm defenses down."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"While this sibling comedy makes some sharp observations about the push and pull of family relationships, it's also one of those deliberately wacky movies that wears us out with nonstop gags that are utterly unconvincing."
‑ Rich Cline,
"Well, they're half right. It's awful."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"The interactions of the two leads are like a finger hitting a single piano note for 90 minutes."
‑ Chris Packham, Village Voice
"Rennie and Pumphrey are both engaging, funny actors, but the relentless aggro-idiocy between them will probably only appeal to other twenty-something dudes who behave like sixth-graders."
‑ Marc Mohan, Oregonian
