Catherine Bray, Film4
Funny and entertaining, it's not a heavyweight contender, but who wants a heavyweight contender every time?– Full review
Kate Muir, Times [UK]
Perhaps one in ten of the jokes hits the mark; the rest are damp, childish squibs– Full review
Peter Bradshaw, Guardian [UK]
If you're solemnly looking for contemporary political observation, this isn't the film for you. But laughs come rolling off the production line a-plenty.– Full review
Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
More of the non sequitur jokes and shouting on which [Ferrell] has built a lucrative and long-lasting career.– Full review
Hannah McGill, The List
Hits an occasional vein of funny, but for the most part it's inescapably half-assed, largely relying for laughs on Ferrell's familiar schtick of delivering filth in deadpan tones.– Full review
