Cover is a social-problem film without a solution. While not of the first rank, its inventory of Philadelphia's hot restaurants and cool sights is an occasion for civic pride.

Approached as comedy, Cover is a riot.

Maitland McDonagh
TV Guide

So overwrought that it quickly crosses the line into unintentionally funny and never recovers.

Peter Debruge

Director Bill Duke aims for social awareness, but delivers second-rate melodrama instead.

The flesh is weak but the spirit is indestructible in Cover, a ham-fisted morality tale.

Kam Williams

A cinematic disaster which attempts to address a pressing social issue, but only fails miserably in the process.
