Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Not so much a movie, more a pub chat that got way out of hand, this ludicrous attempt to plonk veteran rockers Status Quo in an exotic international thriller is so laughably lame it verges on the surreal."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"60-something men on a madcap tropical romp look more than a little desperate. Especially when the writing, directing and editing are this choppy."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"To launch their new album, the iconic 1970s rock band Status Quo indulges in a spirited action-comedy that might have worked when they were in their 20s."
‑ Rich Cline, Contactmusic.com
"Awful, but never memorably awful."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"The whole thing is, somehow, even worse than you'd imagine, and the sound is particularly poor, although this may be considered a positive under the circumstances."
‑ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
"Amateurish acting, slapdash direction and a ropey plot can't entirely dispel the cockeyed charm of this bizarre screen vehicle for Status Quo frontmen Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"Bula Quo! is absolute nonsense of the highest order."
‑ Stefan Pape, HeyUGuys
"Bula Quo! is non-stop fun if you fancy James Bond lite crossed with Jaws, Mr Bean, Mamma Mia! and TV holiday show Wish You Were Here...?"
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Post
"'Bula' is apparently the Fijian for hello...but after 90 minutes of this you'll be desperate to know what goodbye is."
‑ Tim Evans, Sky Movies
"It's cosily plodding and not notably rock'n'roll - but then, isn't that somehow so very Quo?"
‑ Mike McCahill, Guardian
"The pain experienced while watching Bula Quo! can be dulled slightly by speculating about which stand-up comic will eventually get to demolish the film when it makes its inevitable appearance as part of the Bad Film Club."
‑ Ryan Gilbey, New Statesman
"It's not often a brutal murder is soundtracked by a three-chord riff, but this amiable cobblers somehow gets away with it."
‑ Catherine Shoard, Observer [UK]
"Fuelled by their energetic tunes, including the annoyingly catchy title track, the story chugs along amiably enough."
‑ James Mottram, The List
"Fairly entertaining and features an upbeat and recognisable soundtrack, but the lack of comic value and some dreadful performances ultimately let it down."
‑ Jennifer Tate, ViewLondon
"A oddball piece of no thrills (or conspicuous talent) filmmaking that's rescued by the charm of those rock survivors, the 'Quo."
‑ Olly Richards, Empire Magazine
