Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Profane, shockingly un-PC and often laugh-out-loud hilarious, this is the sort of parody that the folks who made the Airplane and Naked Gun movies used to make -- funny."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"The movie hits as much as it misses, with enough witty observations to ensure that somewhere, Kesselman's mother is kvelling."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Corny and crude at times, but effective in its single-minded pursuit of laughs."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"A scattershot assortment of jokes that is funniest when it sticks to its neat premise."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"Uneven, profane and occasionally flat-out hilarious."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Kesselman keeps the movie crackling with the raucous energy absent since Mel Brooks' heyday."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Kesselman's thin script generally is funniest when it's riffing on Jewish stereotypes and goyish bigotry."
‑ David Rooney, Variety
"[E]nds up veering from ridiculous but pointed commentary into abusing and insulting those [the film] intends to champion..."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"The movie starts out hilarious but like The Hammer's Jewish mother, it starts to nag at you after awhile."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone, TheMovieChicks.com
"plays like a lower (much, much lower) budgeted, Jewish version of Malcolm Lee's funnier Undercover Brother"
‑ Chris Barsanti, Filmcritic.com
"Desperation is the project's principal quality."
‑ Mark Jenkins, Washington Post
"An insubstantial but highly entertaining flick."
‑ Matt Weitz, Dallas Morning News
"Everybody needs a little burlesque fun with his digital reprogramming, and the politically incorrect good times barely let up in this story."
‑ Steve Schneider, Orlando Weekly
"Doesn't quite nail it, but it's not as bad as it sounds, either."
