Consensus: 3 Strikes lacks direction and its low-brow humor isn't even that funny.

San Francisco Chronicle

A sloppy hash of a movie, poorly directed and plotted in a way that looks as if it were improvised on the spot.

Pooh's 3 Strikes aims a good deal higher in concept than, say, your average booty movie - but the crude, witless jokes are on exactly that level.

Scott Weinberg

Embarrassingly slipshod comedy tripe.

Tom Keogh

A giddy farce with sporadic laughs and no staying power.

Michael Dequina

Has far more than three strikes against it.
