Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Scattershot, unfocused, and simply not all that funny."
‑ Scott Weinberg,

‑ Dan Lybarger, Nitrate Online

‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine

‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"Early college film effort from South Park creators is the very definition of 'Sophomoric.'"
‑ James Rocchi, Netflix
