Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Sporadically engaging."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"The Matthau-Lemmon magic still works in this later-in-their-careers comedy."

‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"A delightful comedy."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, FulvueDrive-in.com
"Sometimes, even seemingly hopeless films can prove better than one has any reason to expect."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
