Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
If its made-for-TV sensibility explains its chaotically blobby shooting style, it doesn't clarify a plot so painfully padded that it looks for laughs in strange digressive asides regarding bratwurst and coffee. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
A good script is the most essential ingredient for a good movie. Hiring a comedian isn't enough. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
At best, this film is half-inflated. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
This is little more than a big-budget sitcom, with a guest appearance by Mike Ditka, who plays an unfunny version of himself as Phil's assistant coach. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The Onion (A.V. Club)
A sweet, inoffensive, achingly laughless comedy. Full Review
