Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This first-time screenplay by Holly Goldberg Sloan feels more like an outline, and director Richard Benjamin doesn't seem to know quite what to do with it."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"About the least funny comedy ever created."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
