Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Semi-Tough begins as a bawdy and lively romantic comedy about slap happy pro football players, then slows down to a too-inside putdown of contemporary self-help programs."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Set against the backdrop of professional football, Semi-Tough is both a three-cornered romantic comedy and a scathing satire of self-help movements."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Semi-Tough pokes fun in rambling fashion, but it is vulgar in intelligent ways and almost always amusing in its perceptions of befuddled people who are perfectly healthy but often convinced they're not."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Burt Reynolds does what he's best at in a lightweight rom-com with some good one-liners, but it's the parodies of the self-improvement culture that really make the film watchable."
‑ , Film4
"A delightful, gentle satire on the American ideal of winning, which also takes broad but often hilarious swipes at fashionable health fads."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
