Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A muddle from beginning to end. And Tarantino in small doses as an actor is fine. He's in this one much too much."
‑ Dan Fienberg,
"Wildly uneven film that proves, if nothing else, Quentin Tarantino can't act."
‑ Boo Allen, Denton Record Chronicle (TX)
"Pointless and utterly baffling."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Weinberg turns off the DVD player."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Tarantino as an actor... Too bad he didn't write it. The script makes no sense."
‑ Fred Topel,
"As it moves along, the whimsy becomes less amusing, the dialogue less clever, and in the end there are too many questions left unanswered."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
