New York Post - Lou Lumenick
An eccentric little comic thriller filled with enough laughs that I was mostly willing to overlook the fact that it makes virtually no sense as a thriller.

Movieline - Michelle Orange
It's hard to tell what Wild Target is offering, besides the pleasure of its company.

Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
The cast, though, includes a great bunch of Brit faves who have all done better work elsewhere.

Los Angeles Times - Betsy Sharkey
Nighy is usually a treat to watch navigating life's bad turns, so it's especially frustrating that the filmmaker so often leaves him at loose ends.

The New York Times - A.O. Scott
The considerable wit, style, and skill that Mr. Nighy and Ms. Blunt bring to the project are squandered.
