3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] consistently intelligent, coherently constructed comedy that is on occasion a rather pointed critique of the American education system in the early 21st century....It’s more often than not really funny." - 02/17/2017 RogerEbert.com
"[The film] is just amusing enough to make up for its sheer preposterousness; it operates in such a seemingly far-fetched world that logic is out the window at pretty much hello." - 02/16/2017 Los Angeles Times
"Day, in particular, pours all the comedic energy you’d expect into fretfully hyping the conflict." - 02/16/2017 Boston Globe
