Baltimore Sun

By Chris Kaltenbach
What's surprising is that the film has genuine laughs and smart-aleck asides that will keep even nonfans happy (although it helps if you at least like the genre).

It gets by on its concept for a little while but too often mistakes stupid-stupid for clever-stupid.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

By Sean Axmaker
Campbell fans will get a kick out of it. The rest of the world will likely find this spoof a little too insular and indulgent.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
If you don't already know who Bruce Campbell is, it will set you searching for other Bruce Campbell films on the theory that they can't all be like this. Start with "Evil Dead II," is my advice. Not to forget "Bubba Ho-Tep." In fact, start with them before My Name Is Bruce, which is low midrange in the Master's oeuvre.

My Name Is Bruce can be read as a man coming to terms with the career that he has been dealt, or it can be read as simply a trashy B-movie directed by the man who knows best.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
Perhaps because Campbell is a purist at heart, My Name Is Bruce is as awful as anything he has done - a broadly silly gore comedy in which no gag is too cartoonish to be indulged in at least once and preferably three times.

New York Post

By Lou Lumenick
While sporadically funny, the sophomoric My Name Is Bruce is no "Bubba Ho-Tep," the movie where Campbell unforgettably played Elvis Presley as a nursing home patient battling a mummy with the help of John F. Kennedy. But Campbell's fans can feel free to add a star or two.

Austin Chronicle

A dull, tired mess.

It is exactly as one might imagine it: slapstick humor, gross-out monsters and more self-referential digs per minute than "Arrested Development."

By Joe Neumaier
Willing as Campbell is to Shatner-ize himself, his movie will appeal only to true believers.
