Washington Post
The direction has a fluid, no-nonsense authority, and the performances by Harris, Phifer and Cam'ron seal the deal. Full Review

L.A. Weekly
Lazily directed by Charles Stone III (the man behind Budweiser's "Whassup?!" campaign) from a leaden script by Matthew Cirulnick and novelist Thulani Davis. Full Review
