Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The screenwriters just seem to be asking for it when they have Edwards demand of his scruffy team, ''Must you and the others reduce everything to its crudest terms?'' The answer is sadly obvious. – Anita Gates, New York Times, Jul 15, 2014

Rotten: Despite his compulsion to trash everything in his midst, including himself, Chris Farley deserved better. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 15, 2014

Rotten: Pacing is too slack for pic to ever achieve a satisfying comic momentum, and the limp ending is a real letdown. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jul 15, 2014

Rotten: All we're left with is a lame script and dithering direction, a lethal combination. – David Kronke, Los Angeles Times, Jul 15, 2014
