Jean Lowerison
San Diego Metropolitan

A sophomoric exploration of 'life problems' most people solved long ago -- or at least got tired of hearing people kvetch about.

Guillen rarely gets beneath the surface of things. She lists ingredients, but never mixes and stirs.

While American Adobo has its heart (and its palate) in the right place, its brain is a little scattered -- ditsy, even.

American Adobo is entertaining and it's filled with fine performances from the ensemble cast.

The script by Vincent R. Nebrida ... tries to cram too many ingredients into one small pot.

Mushes the college-friends genre (The Big Chill) together with the contrivances and overwrought emotion of soap operas.

Bob Strauss
Los Angeles Daily News

It sticks rigidly to the paradigm, rarely permitting its characters more than two obvious dimensions and repeatedly placing them in contrived, well-worn situations.

Tries to add some spice to its quirky sentiments but the taste is all too familiar.

A big meal of cliches that the talented cast generally chokes on.

Jeffrey M. Anderson
Combustible Celluloid

I'm not sure which is worse: the poor acting by the ensemble cast, the flat dialogue by Vincent R. Nebrida or the gutless direction by Laurice Guillen.

Stiff and schmaltzy and clumsily directed.

An intimate, good-humored ethnic comedy like numerous others but cuts deeper than expected.

Andy Klein

The film is reasonably entertaining, though it begins to drag two-thirds through, when the melodramatic aspects start to overtake the comedy.

Really is a pan-American movie, with moments of genuine insight into the urban heart.

Too much clunky dialog in mawkish situations dissolve this flick into shrill histrionics.

When not wallowing in its characters' frustrations, the movie is busy contriving false, sitcom-worthy solutions to their problems.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Though clearly well-intentioned, this cross-cultural soap opera is painfully formulaic and stilted.

Although melodramatic and predictable, this romantic comedy explores the friendship between five Filipino-Americans and their frantic efforts to find love.

In Adobo, ethnicity is not just the spice, but at the heart of more universal concerns.
