Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Can you inflate a gimmick-driven comedy skit into a full-fledged feature film? Up to a point."
‑ Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter
"A respectably funny -- but small -- effort, a reunion party best watched in your living room, while you consume mass quantities of pizza with extra molten lactate extract of hooved mammals."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"So-so '90s movie based on '70s SNL sketch has edgy humor."
‑ Brian Costello, Common Sense Media

"What's so funny?"
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
