Reception[edit]

Jeanette Catsoulis from The New York Times disliked the picture:

A tired mash-up of every men-behaving-badly sitcom ever to grace a third-tier television network, Speed-Dating tries to coax laughs from characters so dated even Eddie Murphy would balk.[1]

On the other hand, Nick Pinkerton from The Village Voice gave the film a mixed to positive review:

With characters named Too Cool, Dog, and Beaver, Speed-Dating already won... A homemade vaudeville that’s likable enough to wear you down with its eager-to-please capering.[2]
