Critic Reviews

  1. Reviewed by: Joe Leydon
    A loose-knit, character-driven comedy that percolates with good-vibe amusement, often earning industrial-strength guffaws with sneaky one-liners and tossed-off non-sequiturs.
  2. Reviewed by: Claudia Puig
    Directing seems to suit Luke, who also does some of his best work to date on screen.
  3. 63
    Slight but consistently entertaining.
  4. 63
    Despite a terribly conceived coda, Luke and his brothers have mostly succeeded, thanks in large part to sharp dialogue, a solid vintage soundtrack (Rick Nelson's "Garden Party" features prominently) and some great older actors -- Cassel is a particular standout -- from the heyday of American cinema.
