Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Sophisticated auds will enjoy this thoroughly modern spoof on masculine fixations, played out in frank, realistic dialogue."

‑ Aaron Hillis, Premiere Magazine

‑ Ron Wilkinson, Monsters and Critics
"Although steeped in allegory, political or otherwise, the film is perfectly enjoyable, and quite hilarious, in its literal sense."
‑ Christopher Campbell, Cinematical
