Labine and Punch invest their performances with enough anarchic comic inventiveness and genuine chemistry to make their characters' courtship and relationship issues funnily entertaining.

The New York Times
There's nothing sophisticated or groundbreaking here, but the movie is a moderately good entry in the bro-grows-up genre.

Someone Marry Barry is a reasonably entertaining argument that good performers can enliven weak material.

The way the film hews to tiresome conventions is itself a buzzkill, but worse is its sheer lack of energy, as Pearlstein stages serious and/or heartfelt conversations that go on twice as long as necessary and treat the characters as more than the two-dimensional caricatures they actually are.
38
But because the movie is at heart as fake-sentimental as any other such motion picture, or greeting card, or what have you, there's a lot of backpedaling after, say, a random attempt to milk laughs out of human trafficking.
