Critic Reviews



Based on 15 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com
A one-dimensional romantic comedy that feels like an old-fashioned vehicle picture, the kind the big movie studios used to make in the 1930's and 40's just to bring in the fans of a particular actor or actress.
A pleasantly tuned vehicle for R&B star and budding actor Usher.
The Hollywood Reporter
As bland and forgettable as its title.
The A.V. Club
All Usher fans really seem to want out of a movie like this is an opportunity to ogle their idol for an hour and a half. And that's all this movie affords them.
That the 27-year-old Usher isn't much of an actor is no surprise, but he's strikingly uncharismatic for someone who's been in the spotlight since he was six.
A jumble of genres including mob melodrama, bodyguard romance and interracial love story, none of which is handled in a remotely satisfying manner by director Ron Underwood. The film's tone shifts with all the grace of a car with a balky transmission.
L.A. Weekly
The movie pitches itself as a modern-day "Romeo and Juliet," but its execution is so lazy and inept that if the lovers were to die horribly it would come more as relief than tragedy. Sadly, in this respect, as in every other, In the Mix disappoints.
New York Daily News
Even diehard fans will get more out of watching a four-minute music video than they'll find in this mixed-up mess.
May be a good tactical move for the artist's career, but it's a bad movie.
New York Post
In the dumps.
