The film received mixed reviews. Merle Bertrand of Film Threat called the film "a mess", "confusing" and "not funny". According to the Hollywood Reporter the film was instead "a candidate for eventual cult status". Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times gave a mixed review, stating that Alan "demonstrates his capability in handling a large cast that is by and large improvising" but that the movie "looks and sounds better than it is".
