The New York Times
High-school cafeteria soup has more flavor than this bland, tepid throwback. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Feels like a bad sitcom. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
The racial angle becomes the tiresome basis of almost every joke. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Having funny lines and amusing gags is only half the battle. The rest is in the delivery, and that's where the trio of Martin, Latifah, and Levy excel. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
If you go to see this sloppy sitcom, in which Mr. Martin plays a divorced, repressed lawyer named Peter Sanderson, do expect to be surprised, seduced and entertained by Queen Latifah. Full Review
