Rotten: Might provide a much-needed fix for Mac's most ardent fans, but they'll have to wait for a star vehicle that fully exploits the range of his comic gifts.
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Friday, March 25, 2005
Rotten: A film that could have wryly dealt with matters of race, or simply could have been funnier, had it possessed a clearer template than a star pairing and a truncated title.
- Brian Lowry, Variety, Friday, March 25, 2005
Fresh: Mac and Kutcher have proved themselves better comics than actors, but both give charming, subtle performances here.
- Bruce Newman, San Jose Mercury News, Saturday, April 2, 2005
Meet the Parents with an extra war of the races twist. It mostly relies on those comedic moments of pure painful embarrassment which are all handled very well and taken to the extreme. Kutcher being coaxed into telling black jokes to his future in laws is a prime example of upping the ante with each minute waiting for the inevitable downfall. The film works as it laughs with each race as opposed to at them, well sometimes at them, but in a sweet kind of way not likely to offend. Other than that though it is far too predictable to be any purposeful comment on society. Still it's true enough and well acted for the required chuckles, groans, and aaaawwwwww's.
