"Two men of very different generations coming to understand and appreciate each other makes for some fine moments. And that's just the actors."
Lisa Kennedy | Denver Post
"The film was directed by Raymond De Felitta, whose ‘Two Family House' is an overlooked treasure. With this film he does what the screenplay requires, with admiration for the actors and sincere acceptance of the material. The problem is that the screenplay doesn't require enough. I cannot recommend the movie."
"Reiser has given us a film that makes us laugh while contemplating the ways we understand and misunderstand those we love."
Stefan Ulstein | Christianity Today
"By the time the characters are discussing mortality, an end to the cranky drama is blessedly in sight, and the entire film can rest in peace."
"The semi-autobiographical film has a few genuinely humorous and touching moments, but those infrequent occurrences are buried under a steaming pile of schmaltz."
