    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Booty Call never quite gets tiresome, thanks to the appealing cast and its sexy-goofy spirit. The picture succeeds in finding jokes within jokes. show more

    Susan Wloszczyna USA Today

    However, anyone seeking a good time that involves wit and logic will consider the film a definite wrong number. [26Feb1997 Pg 03.D] show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Although the movie is a wall-to-wall exercise in bad taste, it somehow retains a certain innocence; it challenges and sometimes shocks, but for me at least it didn't offend, because its motives were so obviously good-hearted. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Booty Call isn't a source of nonstop laughs, and there are a lot of gags that fall flat, but, on those sporadic occasions when something works, the result can be hilarious. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    With the exception of a few laughs - including a hysterical footsie scene and another that involves Saran Wrap - this one's a no-brainer. show more

    At 70 minutes, this groin and groan comedy seems almost dismissively short, but don't believe the myths you've been told: longer is not always better. show more

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    It's basically a one-joke comedy that spins out of control once the joke's over, but the cast is likable, the women smart, and one can't argue with the important safe-sex message. show more

    Russell Smith Austin Chronicle

    Within the context of films that include the word booty in their titles, it serves up an unusually fresh, inventive and good-natured brew of pure lascivious fun. show more

    Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly

    There are moments of lewd hilarity, like a game of footsie that turns genderifically confused. But Booty Call loses its dirty-minded, how-low-will-they-go-to-get-laid edge when the boys venture out into the New York night to buy condoms. show more

    Stephen Holden The New York Times

    This contemporary sex farce, directed by Jeff Pollack, has the attention span of a hyperactive child, but its bawdy sexual humor rarely flags. show more
