Andrew Lapin - New York Magazine/Vulture - Top Critic: ” The question in this movie's title gets a lot of use. A version of it could also apply to pretty much everyone involved, especially Cranston.”
Edward Douglas - New York Daily News - Top Critic: ” Ventures into some corny (yet sweet) territory in resolving its central conflict, but it throws enough laughs at the viewer that at least some of them land.”
David Ehrlich – indieWIRE - Top Critic: ” Unfolding like a half-hearted remake of Meet the Parents for the Judd Apatow generation, this battle between James Franco and Bryan Cranston makes for a fitfully funny stalemate.”
