Village Voice
Adobo doesn't exoticize the culture so much as leaven it with a sense of ordinariness. Full Review
Andy Klein
New Times (L.A.)
The film is reasonably entertaining, though it begins to drag two-thirds through, when the melodramatic aspects start to overtake the comedy. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
The movie is stiff and schmaltzy and clumsily directed. Full Review
Jack Mathews
New York Daily News
Offers traditional cinematic gab about marital status, sexual orientation, nationality and degree of fulfillment. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
An intimate, good-humored ethnic comedy like numerous others but cuts deeper than expected. Full Review
