L.A. Weekly - Ella Taylor
Lewd, crude and occasionally too brutal to take, it's also gorgeous, heartfelt.

Newsweek - Unnamed
A highly entertaining movie in a genre that is often as stiff as the Lady Gibson's boning.
63
Miami Herald - Curtis Morgan
A tad too raunchy for its own good.
60
TV Guide Magazine - Maitland McDonagh
It's vulgar, to be sure, but it's also brash and invigorating.

Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
Watchable in a facile, trashy way. Unfortunately, most of the movie is mired in sludge, slime, mud, blood, and studiously dank cinematography.
