Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Well, consider the job half done: Sexy it ain't, but, once in a while, you will crack a smile."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"A brave attempt to do something different. Revolution may not be entirely successful, but it is made with heart."
‑ Laurence Boyce, Little White Lies
"There's a lot lost in translation and the oft-repeated jokes are mostly of the lame variety."
‑ Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
"Voutas offers a sex comedy salted with satirical comment on Chinese society."
‑ Patrick Peters, Empire Magazine
"Not surprisingly, Voutas's inept movie has yet to find a Chinese distributor. Surprisingly, it has found one here."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"It's light-hearted rather than provocative, though the gag about the elderly customers' love-making stamina is a bit of a flop."
‑ Tom Dawson, Total Film
