Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Everything one would expect from an R-rated comedy from the early '80s is present and accounted for: gratuitous T&A, profanity that flies like poetry, then-timely potshots at famous figures, and plenty of impressive vehicular stuntwork."

‑ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International

‑ Dan Jardine, Cinemania

"The film's incessant assault on its characters and their perverse quest for the American Holy Grail (money and power) has the pacing and energy of a 1930's zany screwball comedy, but is much darker in spirit."
‑ Dan Jardine, Slant Magazine
"The romantic subplot, like nearly everything else here, is a total lemon."
‑ Jeremy Heilman, MovieMartyr.com
