commentA Fun End-of-the-Summer Film
The motivation behind this film was simply to have fun! John Hazelton of Screen International says, “(it) produces some real laughs but was probably more fun to make than it ultimately is to watch.” Perhaps the best part of the movie is “another shining performance” from Robert Downey Jr. as critic Eugene Levy observed. However, audiences who don't mind "Mad TV"-style humor stretched out to nearly two hours should be sufficiently entertained, contends Kevin Lally of Film Journal International.
