Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's not that the movie is utterly bereft of arresting moments. It's just that each of these prominently features one of the aforementioned supporting cast and not the so-called star."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"When the writer's this far off, the actors and the audience pay the price."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"The film is as grating as the people who inhabit it."
‑ David Cornelius,
"I expected to laugh a lot harder and more frequently. Mama's Boy isn't what I'd call a terrible movie. Instead, it's a movie that assembles a lot of interesting elements that never gel."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"Matters quickly regress into an antic romantic comedy, potentially buoyed by a strong cast but soon thwarted by a screenplay as leaden as it is predictable."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"...there's certainly no understating the ineffectiveness of Heder's relentlessly (and irritatingly) over-the-top performance..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Things sadly come to a grinding halt when the schtick wears thin and starts to repeat itself."
‑ Christopher Null,
"...unless you are related to Keaton or Heder, I wouldn't advise you go out of your way to see it."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Haphazardly conceived and clumsily executed, this aggressively quirky yet gratingly unfunny comedy appears set on the fast track to vidstore bins."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"Ana Faris is the best thing in this predictable, often silly Jon Heder movie about a spoilt son trying to sabotage his mother's new relationship"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"The picture is merely series of loose gags stumbling into each other while Heder makes faces, Hamilton spends more time on his soundtrack selections than his storytelling, as the rest of the cast waits patiently for their paychecks to clear."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Mama's Boy is the ultimate, definitive, supremo bad movie, the universal black hole of suckage bad movie, the celluloid anti-Christ bad movie of bad movies -- not to put too fine a point on it or anything."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
