"The setups are flat, the jokes don’t land and the actors don’t — or won’t — connect.(…) Rating: ★ (out of 5)"  NEG

"[It] deserves some credit for fulfilling its own modest, escapist ambitions. Unlike a lot of what we see these days, in movies and elsewhere, it doesn’t feel like a rip-off or a scam. It’s downright innocent."  POS

"[It] isn't painfully bad so much as it never really springs to life. There's certainly potential for something entertaining here, but the film shows gender-swapping on a superficial level"  NEG
