An embarrassingly amateurish and cloying comedy.

Too many exchanges are sitcom-smooth.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Sitcom-ish but lively and amusing ensemble comedy that treats its intelligent, emotionally conflicted characters with respect...

| Original Score: 3/4

Creative Loafing

Don't let the title fool you into dismissing this as another Steven Seagal action snooze.

| Original Score: 3/4

Middleton ... has assembled a clique of familiar, broadly drawn characters, but her film manages to rise above sitcom status, thanks to their sassy repartee.

| Original Score: 2/4

A light, engaging, well-carpentered film, with a quick wit and a sense of character just deep enough to lend some weight to the laugh lines.

Maitland McDonagh
TV Guide's Movie Guide

The movie's low budget shows, but the competent (many of them also sitcom veterans) cast keeps things moving smoothly.

Charlotte Observer

The acting can be subtle (Payne) or broad (Alexander), laid-back (Morgan) or laid on thick (De Sousa). Yet these performance variations matter less than the honesty of the situations.
