1.5 of 5

“..the title doesn't really match the performances - no one here goes out on a limb for anything. The entire production set it's goals so low that even though everyone involved hits their mark..”
by Clayton Hollifield [Clayholio Watches Movies]
1.5 of 5

“..so predictable-even if the movie tries to surprise you by proffering almost zero clues-is a marvel of cinematic ignorance..”
by Paul Arrand Rodgers [Fear of a Ghost Planet]
2.5 of 5

“..a stinker buddy cop comedy that is the antithesis of convolution, and possibly the definition of slow moving. Edge and Kennedy have no chemistry..”
by Nate Boss [High-Def Digest]

COTTAGE COUNTRY :

“..2 States' romantic angle is a little difficult to connect given the way it is moved along in such a hurry in order to incorporate everything, but the family side of the bargain is truly touching..”
by Paloma Sharma [rediff.com]

INTRAMURAL :

“..the film has got a stacked cast of comedic talent, it unknowingly and amusingly nods to and borrows from more traditional sports films, isn't afraid to get damn weird in service to a good joke..”
by Kate Erbland [Film School Rejects]
