When Adan requires a place to stay, a volunteer at the hospital, Karen Hillridge, offers to let him stay at her house, much to her daughter Meghan's dismay.

Rotten Tomatoes, a review aggregator, reports that 11% of nine surveyed critics gave the film a positive review; the average rating is 4.6/10. Metacritic rated it 33/100 based on 10 reviews. Peter Debruge of Variety called it a "well-cast but seldom funny satire" that misses an opportunity at social commentary. Frank Scheck of The Hollywood Reporter wrote, "Despite appealing performances, this comedy suffers from its derivative premise." Stephen Holden of The New York Times called it "a feeble, lazy descendant of Being There". Gary Goldstein of The Los Angeles Times described it as "a thoroughly engaging lark" that is saved by the cast. Mike D'Angelo of The A.V. Club gave it a letter grade of "C" and wrote, "[Greenwood] can't rescue the movie all by himself, but he does at least transform it into a first-rate acting class."
