    Grier plays the part of the pompous patrician with superb finesse and dry wit, easily the movie's highlight. show more

    A likable if not exactly groundbreaking comedy. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Director Tina Gordon Chism, who also wrote the screenplay, seems to have relied pretty strongly on Perry for guidance. In particular, she rejects any notions of subtlety, either in the comedy or the weirdly heavy-handed messages about masculinity. show more

    The film’s first half is a slog as Chism sets up the minefield for Wade, with every (fully visible) mine certain to explode. show more

    The laughs follow an overly familiar path, but it’s great to see Grier, one of the bright lights of the seminal TV sketch comedy “In Living Color,” button down this judge and find ways to break formula and make him hilarious. show more

    Kyle Smith New York Post

    Chism’s characters are pleasingly odd, and though she can’t string much of a narrative together — there is a stop-and-start quality to the picture that grows tiresome — a few of the set pieces are funny. show more
