Reception[edit]

Shockya panned the film,[6] writing "There is some piecemeal — though very minuscule, it must be stressed – charm to some of Gad's energetic rants, and a riff about cowboy costumes having "jumped the gay shark" is mildly amusing. Otherwise, however, this is a movie which tries to wring its meager laughs from a scene in which shit literally hits the fan. Josh Heald's script is a recycled bunch of road trip cliches, and never very funny ones at that."[7]
