Christian Science Monitor

By David Sterritt
In a surprise move, the creator of "Beavis and Butt-Head" has made a laid-back, even subtle comedy that generally favors mischievous ironies over outlandish jokes.

Jennifer Aniston...doesn't have much screen time, but in playing this slightly insecure, affable young woman, she does her best film acting to date.

The movie's dialogue is smart. It doesn't just chug along making plot points.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Rick Groen
What began as discomfiting satire soon devolves into silly farce. By the time Friends star Jennifer Aniston pops up as a waitress-cum-love-interest (quite a stretch for her), it's a sure sign we're back within the smug confines of the Tinseltown formula flick.

It fails to sustain its comic momentum or high energy level. The first half is fresh and funny, but it doesn't last.

Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
Feels cramped and underimagined. I think Judge is capable of making an inspired live-action comedy, but next time he'll have to remember to do what he does in his animated ones--keep the madness popping.
