Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Viewers who thought they were watching a comedy will be left scratching their heads when it turns into a mundane murder mystery."
‑ Richard James Havis, Hollywood Reporter
"At the film's core is a mystery that isn't intriguing..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"I gotta admit I nodded off a couple times just for a few seconds. I couldn't help it; my eyes were rebelling against this movie."

‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"Offbeat film about a cop struggling for self-respect"
‑ Louis Proyect,
"A pumping, in-your-face style-fest."
