Critic Reviews

    So often loose and funny that you'd have to be pretty stingy not to get some pleasure from it.
  2. Doesn't always cut it -- and, somewhat embarrassingly, boom mikes hover on screen so frequently they deserve co-billing -- but it's a likable venture that just misses being a lovable one.
  3. Inlike many directors with music video backgrounds, Tim Story keeps the flashy cutting to a minimum and lets the story unfold at its own unhurried pace.
  4. New Times (L.A.)

    Isn't as funny as it should be. Cedric's speech impediment only goes so far -- he's actually funnier in Serving Sara, without having to rely on a big wig to do his acting for him.
  5. Reviewed by: Ed Park
    As hackneyed as they come, but the overall mood is less cynical than affectionate.
