The A.V. Club

By Nathan Rabin
All Usher fans really seem to want out of a movie like this is an opportunity to ogle their idol for an hour and a half. And that's all this movie affords them.

All of the plot developments seem half-hearted -- which is a shame, because the star has the charm to succeed if given a better movie.

A genially cruddy B movie can sometimes go places - sort of - that bigger movies won't.

That the 27-year-old Usher isn't much of an actor is no surprise, but he's strikingly uncharismatic for someone who's been in the spotlight since he was six.

Austin Chronicle

By Marc Savlov
This vehicle for hip-hop star Usher is no blinged-out Beamer rough-riding it over to Jay-Z's joint to wallop some cheeba up off'n the Zeezer's haid; it's more of a Yugo, as in "You go to this wannabe straight-to-video tripe, you deserve what you get."
