Critic Reviews



Based on 4 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com
Goldberg has made a commendably adventurous and mostly enjoyable meta-comedy that recalls both the best and worst of 1970s Hollywood.
More enervating than it is ambitious, Jake Squared is partly a romantic comedy and mostly a pseudo-philosophical apology for self-absorption.
Koteas and the rest of the cast (including Jane Seymour, Virginia Madsen and Jennifer Jason Leigh) struggle gamely with the material, but they're defeated by the nonstop chatter, Goldberg's flat-footed direction and the needlessly choppy cutting.
The New York Times
Jake Squared combines the most grating tendencies of meta navel-gazing with the sexism of reality television - pushing the limit of viewer tolerance to zero.
