Filmmaker-actor Ray McKinnon voices his Southern droll in this amusing, feel-good comedy.

Bob Longino
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

It's a film brimming with individual scenes featuring nice visual touches about the South and comforting down-home dialogue spiced with a healthy twinge of sarcasm. Too bad the movie never completely gels.

Philip Martin
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

...the sort of movie that, if the dice fall right, could find a considerable audience. It is a lot smarter and truer to life than a lot of little independent movies that could and did.

Roger Moore
Orlando Sentinel

Not a very good movie, on the whole, but there are laugh-out-loud moments and there's promise in the unusual world it depicts.

Matt Brunson
Creative Loafing

Arch in a way that his previous feature was honest, it's a clumsy attempt to lay an overcoat of forced cornpone whimsy on a drab storyline involving mobsters.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

The influences of a strange outside world rub up against -- and sometimes abrade -- Southern tradition and a good ol' boy's increasingly fragile sense of self in this dry, gentle, sometimes silly and sometimes very funny comedy.

Joe Leydon

A Southern-fried deadpan farce that suggests a mid-'60s CBS sitcom as reimagined by Hal Hartley.

Marc Savlov
Austin Chronicle

It's just that the comedy and the drama never quite crystalize into anything remotely affecting, with the end result feeling more like some extended Southern in-joke than an honest movie.
