Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I found a lot of it only mildly amusing but always enjoyable, due mostly to the rapport between the mischievous Cook and the sawed-off sad sack Moore."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Painfully funny."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com

‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Simply magic......a comedy that will cast a spell on you from start to end"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole

‑ Mark Bourne, DVDJournal.com
"...the film suffers from too many 70s era flourishes...and extreme overlength."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
