  1. Mr. Showbiz
    Reviewed by: Michael Atkinson
    A pleasant and surprisingly polished fish-out-of-water comedy.
  2. In the end, even Foxx is drowned out by the parade of one-note supporting characters.
  3. San Francisco Examiner
    Reviewed by: Wesley Morris
    It's a movie so foul even the folks at the NAACP Image Awards would have to look the other way.
  4. Reviewed by: Robert Horton
    A lot of it works for two reasons: the situation allows for plenty of business with small-town eccentrics, and Jamie Foxx has been given a loose rein in the central role.
  5. By the end, even the irrepressible Mr. Foxx seems tired and defeated, and we can only hope he perks up in time for his next movie.
  6. A real dud, with few laughs, no characterization, little story, a cluster of stereotypes and clichés and just plain nothing for Foxx to do.
