Robbie Collin from the Daily Telegraph was unimpressed with the film. In a review he wrote: “By all means shrug and say well, it’s for kids, so the pre-owned jokes, threadbare subtext and convoluted plot make no odds. It’ll pass the time. Well, so will the autoplay function on YouTube.”

BBC 5 Live’s Mark Kermode was confused by the plot, saying: “I just couldn’t relax into the premise of it. I just kept thinking that it didn’t make any sense.” However, the Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw gave a more positive review, saying: “There’s some good-natured entertainment along the way, and Baldwin’s husky basso profundo is always enjoyable.”
