Critic Reviews

Somehow, though, director Huck Botko and writer Jeff Tetreault have turned their dopey tribute to testosterone into a surprisingly amusing rom-com.
Bad Johnson is probably the most thoughtful movie possible about a penis that takes human form.
The New York Times
A sometimes amusing sex farce.
Instead of trying for something truly outrageous or surreal-qualities that should flow naturally from the script's insane premise-writer Jeff Tetreault and director Huck Botko opt for rom-com blandness from beginning to end, leaning hard on generic conventions even as they pretend to satirize them.
The film will leave viewers feeling emasculated in more ways than one.
The film manages to be an often uncomfortable experience without fully embracing its own bad taste, starting with an inherently insane premise and somehow steering it through the most basic of romantic comedy paces.
This is an astonishingly bad film.
The whole sorry enterprise leaves you feeling, well, shafted.
The jokes are flaccid, the acting is stiff, and the whole idea is such a boner, you have to wonder if the writer was missing another critical organ when he came up with it.
Huck Botko's film asks us to laugh at, even revel in, the misadventures of womanizing men, even as it condemns them for their behavior.
A buddy comedy that reeks like stale underpants.
