Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Love Stinks offers up the very modest pleasures of a middling TV show, something you'd watch only if the cable went out on a Friday night."
‑ Robert Horton, Film.com
"Sometimes it stinks with the sweat of failure. But sometimes it's as bitterly funny as its makers could hope."
‑ Jeff Millar, Houston Chronicle
"With 3rd Rock from the Sun's French Stewart in the lead, it's hard to not think 'sitcom' while watching this 'un-romantic comedy.'"
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"In the last 10 minutes, the film even flickers to real life. But that doesn't make up for the more than 80 minutes that's gone before."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newhouse News Service
"Sure, women with wedlock on the brain and men led around by their private parts are good for a chuckle, but only if you have something witty or perceptive to say about them."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Love Stinks is such a paean to television, it would have done better to go straight to video, where it belongs."
‑ Cate McQuaid, Boston Globe
"Holy mother of the bride, what bile was Jeff Franklin drinking when he came up with this curdled revenge fantasy?"
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"They got one word in the title right."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"This movie begs the question: Why do funny people make mediocre movies?"
‑ Widgett Walls, Needcoffee.com
"The bad smell emanating from this unsavory comedy simply means it's dead on arrival, is beyond resuscitation and is already quite putrid."
‑ Jim Judy, Screen It!
"A cut-rate romantic comedy of the kind that Adam Sandler would star in if his movies made no money."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Mr. Showbiz
"Jeff Franklin's idea of cutting-edge comedy writing runs to the kind of vulgar, unfunny shtick that puts the gag in 'gag.'"
‑ Rod Dreher, New York Post
"Witless romantic comedy with hooks and lines that are all stinkers."
‑ Philip Booth, Orlando Weekly
"It's an awful, misanthropic, deadly unfunny and badly acted war - of - the - sexes travesty."
‑ William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"While the film bills itself as an unromantic comedy, the truth is that it's an unromantic un-comedy."
‑ Jason Kaufman, Citysearch
