Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Martin, Keaton and cinematographer William A. Fraker put this retro fluff over better than expected early on, but hour 2 is only for those who don't want their equilibriums rattled by surprises."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"A sequel to a lousy remake? How droll."
‑ Pete Vonder Haar, Film Threat
"An exuberant sequel to complete a near-perfect translation of the 1950s era comedies to the 1990s."
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
"Like a trained monkey, Martin Short is trotted back out for more of his mincing shtick. But perhaps the most unattractive quality of both films is the ugly obsession with material excess."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"A follow up as emotional as the original"
‑ Fred Topel, About.com
"Cheesy pap, but a few glossy moments."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
"The strengths of these films are not so much laughs as sincerity and heart. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"More of a sequel for sequel's sake than a justified continuation of the story."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Martin at his best...nearly, anyway"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
