Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This movie is predictable from scene one, though that wouldn't be a problem if it had a good script, good performances and solid direction. But it doesn't."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"Do you amuse me, Joe Pesci? No, you do not."
‑ Martin Scribbs, Low IQ Canadian
"A shaggy dog drama about the education of one upwardly bound college student."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"A politically correct, vastly sentimental and ultimately insincere saga of the friendship between a kind homeless man, played by Joe Pesci, and a guilt-ridden Harvard student, played byBrendan Frazer."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Well meaning drama but oversimplifies a lot and plays the death card too easily."
‑ Fred Topel, About.com
"Obviously inspired by the success of Scent of a Woman, this one could have been called Scent of a Bum."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"One of the few films I've ever walked out on. Pesci and Fraser serve up unsympathetic and grating characters."
‑ Brian Mckay, eFilmCritic.com
