Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"McDermott's natural earnestness serves him well as attorney Bobby Donnell on The Practice, but he shows zero flair for comedy."
‑ Bruce Fretts, Entertainment Weekly
"In Three to Tango Neve Campbell is mired in a plot of such stupidity that there is only one thing to do, and that is to look at her."
‑ Roger Ebert, At the Movies
"Perry and Campbell's natural rapport is put at the service of an idiot plot."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Trouble is, they're trying so hard and missing the mark by so much that they end up being more irritating than appealing."
‑ Judy Gerstel, MSNBC
"Offensive."
‑ Darren D'Addario, Citysearch
"Three to Tango is too careful, too proper in its approach, to shift into high gear."
‑ Robert Horton, Film.com
"An essentially subversive comedy with a bubbly, immensely entertaining face."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"If I had wanted a 90-minute episode of Friends, I would've asked for one."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"Full of gay jokes that were tired back in the day of In and Out."
‑ Lawrence Toppman, Charlotte Observer
"The lack of film stars doesn't signify that Three To Tango lacks virtues; it's just that it doesn't stretch toward anything excellent."
‑ George Meyer, Orlando Weekly
"Three to Tango trips early and never gets up off the floor."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"Although sometimes amusing, 'Three to Tango' relies on a one-joke emphasis that wears thin early on."
‑ Betty Jo Tucker, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"A whirlwind of bad gay jokes and mistaken motives."
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
"Its humor seems forced, lame and dated."
‑ Tom Sander, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"Three to Tango is a poor locker room joke disguised as a sophisticated comedy."
‑ Tony Toscano, Citadel Broadcasting
