Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie is called "How Sweet It Is" and oh no it ain't."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"There's not much that can kindly be said about either the goofy script or awkward direction."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"The movie's message, delivered in song at the end, seems less like a credo than like an excuse: "Sometimes all you need to do is try.""
‑ Rachel Saltz, New York Times
"An extraordinarily undistinguished comedy from director Brian Herzlinger."
‑ Chris Packham, Village Voice
"[Piscopo] isn't just too good for this film, he's too good to be giving it this much effort."
‑ Amy Nicholson, Los Angeles Times
"How Sweet It Is may be sweet in spirit, but as a movie it isn't so, you know, sweet."
‑ Ethan Alter, Television Without Pity
