Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"When you're looking to remake French cinema, the name 'Stallone' leaps immediately to mind. As in, 'for God's sake, don't cast Sylvester Stallone!'"

"Only occasionally flirts with the breathless lunacy of well-conceived farce - and there are huge, painful gaps in between the few worthwhile gags."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com

‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"This is why Stallone gave up on comedy."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
