"The Life and Hard Times of Guy Terrifico is basically a one-note wonder."
‑ Kevin Courrier, Boxoffice Magazine
"Enjoyable as a goof, but not much else came off sounding good."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Michael Mabbott's first feature boasts some inspired comedy and very fine tunes."
‑ Jason Anderson, eye WEEKLY
