Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Unfortunately, the characters seem to be doing all the laughing, while the general public has nothing to cling to but the horndog flirtation between mismatched leads William H. Macy and Meg Ryan -- hardly ideal ingredients for mainstream success."
‑ Peter Debruge, Variety
"Lets many humorous conceits fly."
‑ Matthew Sorrento, Film Threat
