Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This second feature is very watchable, but it lacks a sense of purpose (so prevalent in its predecessor), and any emotional punch or, indeed, pay-off."
‑ Ed Gibbs,
"What we end up with is a Miramax film from the early-to-mid 1990s. Something a tiny bit edgy to watch on VHS back in the day, but something you don't need to feel too guilty about skipping today."
‑ Jordan Hoffman, ScreenCrush
"The drama never fully takes off, and the laughs are too few and far between to offset the film's fundamental deficiencies."
‑ Michael Nordine, Film Threat
