While the wheels start spinning in the film's overly drawn-out launderette sequence, they pretty much come off by the final act, when the pacing sags like an old mattress.
(James Mottram, The List)
So spectacularly bungled that it leaves the viewer in a state of advanced petrification.
(Xan Brooks, Guardian)
Simon Pegg is an incredibly likeable actor who seems determined to appear in as many unlikeable films as possible, but even taking into account recent debacles such as Burke and Hare, this represents an alarming new low.
(Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph)
Exasperation eventually morphs into unrelenting pain, and there's not a single, solitary laugh to be had.
(Trevor Johnston, Time Out)
There is a complete failure of tone in this film, from beginning to end.
(David Sexton, Evening Standard)
