Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It'd be unkind not to give Cupo credit for taking a gamble, and ending up with a halfway decent film. But taking a gamble isn't the same thing as pulling it off."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"There's something about Cupo that keeps us interested despite the thinness of the material."
‑ Adam Nayman, L.A. Weekly
"Cupo's script never quite settles on a point of view, toggling wildly from the wise-guy mechanics of loan sharks and race forms to the personal concerns of an expectant wife and a steady job."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"The potent cast, Tony Vitale's assured direction and a solid foundation with lead thesp Patrick Cupo adapting his own play help mitigate many of the pic's deficiencies."
‑ Robert Koehler, Variety
