New York Daily News
Pretty thin feature-film subject. But the silliness is so contagious that it doesn't matter.

Village Voice
Weirdest, funniest studio release of the summer so far and a bona fide cult object in the making.

Pootie Tang may be raw and slovenly -- hey, it often is raw and slovenly -- but it succeeds as a laugh getter because of the spot-on satirical notes. You might say that the movie walks it like it talks it; I'm not sure what Pootie would say.

Entertainment Weekly
Amiably silly.
38
The movie's comic powers are often marred by silliness and stereotypes. Pootie tanks.
30
Too often is as garbled as Pootie's own jargon.
25
Baltimore Sun
By the end, Pootie Tang feels as long as Kevin Costner's "Wyatt Earp."
11
Dull and unfunny claptrap.
10
New Times (L.A.)
The overall film is hideously grating, thanks to an inconsistent look, animated titles all over the place, excessive explanatory commentary and abrasive R&B videos inserted throughout.
10
Variety
Has the distinction of being one of the most amateurish features ever released by a major studio.
