Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Starts out with tremendous promise, introducing an intriguing and alluring premise, only to fall prey to a boatload of screenwriting cliches that sink it faster than a leaky freighter."
‑ John Petrakis, Chicago Tribune
"The story is -- forgive me -- a little thin, and the filmmaking clumsy and rushed."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"Too daft by half ... but supremely good natured."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The screenplay, co-written by director Imogen Kimmel, lacks the wit necessary to fully exploit the comic elements of the premise, making the proceedings more bizarre than actually amusing."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Worth seeing once, but its charm quickly fades."
‑ Jamie Gillies, Apollo Guide
"The comic performances are all spot on, especially Lee Ross's turn as Ken."
‑ Chris Wiegand, Boxoffice Magazine
"Hefty charmer."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"By the end of the movie, you're definitely convinced that these women are spectacular."
‑ Maria Garcia, Film Journal International
