Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Dreary comedy, where the laughs are not forthcoming."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A tame mix of jokes that haven't stood up over the years and misunderstandings that likely weren't all that funny to begin with."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Apollo Guide
"Pretty funny Lewis vehicle. More controlled than most."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
