Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A moderately enjoyable, nontaxing sort of comedy. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Oct 11, 2012

Rotten: The film works hard at its inoffensiveness. Throughout, jokes are left on the table, setups never pay off in any significant way. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Oct 11, 2012

Rotten: Cage fighting is not inherently funny. In fact, it's the opposite of funny, something like cock fighting only with people, and this presents a problem the movie never completely overcomes. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 11, 2012

Rotten: [It] delivers repeated blows - to the abdomen, to the head, and to the groin, but not often enough to the funny bone. – Janice Page, Boston Globe, Oct 11, 2012
