Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A trip to a strip mall would be more entertaining."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"It sports a gentle amiability that's engaging."
‑ Cary Darling, Dallas Morning News
"This is a fine little movie in every since of the word little."
‑ Tim Cogshell, Boxoffice Magazine
"An outrageously funny, irreverent comedy that will have you in stitches, as long as you're willing to check your brain at the door for 91 minutes."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"It's clear that Khan cares deeply about the characters that populate The Strip, but most of them aren't worth his, or our, time."
‑ Joseph Jon Lanthier, Slant Magazine
"If one of your non-filmmaker friends watched Office Space a few too many times, this is probably the movie he'd make."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"A sweet if ultimately wan comedy about male bonding and office politics."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"It's like an artificial chocolate "bit" -- looks kinda the same as a real chocolate chip, but it's an unsatisfying imitation."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"Jameel Khan's film springs from the format of The Office like a blurred reproduction from a bad copy machine."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix
"Sweats to wring laughs from overworked themes and underwhelming performances."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"The dialogue is embarrassing, and scenes that should take two minutes wind up lasting 10."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Starts off so shakily and features such overly familiar material that by the time the filmmaker's love for his characters starts to shine through the stale jokes and recycled premise, it's too late for the film to close the sale."
‑ Brian Tallerico, Movie Retriever
"Like an unathletic kid giving T-ball a shot, The Strip is consistently mediocre, but you give it credit for trying."
‑ Matt Pais, Metromix.com
