As it is a direct to video release, there were few critical reviews. On IMDb, it maintains a 2.7 approval rating, but audiences have given a more gentle response, praising the silly, over the top jokes, breaking the fourth wall, and the performances of Dom DeLuise and Rodney Dangerfield. Features music from Del Noah and the Mt. Ararat Finks with Eric Wilson of Sublime on double bass.
