Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The scenario isn't entirely plausible, but the actors are engaging and you can't beat the running time."
‑ Kevin Crust, Los Angeles Times
"Fakers is pleasant, passable entertainment, even if it's all too lightweight."
‑ David Cornelius, DVDTalk.com

‑ Paul Malcolm, L.A. Weekly
"just doesn't have enough pep or twists to maintain interest in the long run."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"All blag and no substance."
‑ Jamie Russell, BBC.com
"Paul Gerstenberger's amusingly waggish screenplay keeps one attuned."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"This idiotic crime comedy begins as a heated Sophia Petrillo flashback only to continue as a lobotomized Guy Ritchie caper."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
