Critical reception[edit]

As an independent film, Marvelous did not have a great deal of critical focus. What there was, was mixed. Ronnie Scheib of Variety praised the "marvelously peculiar dialogue" and the good work of the actors. The reviewer at calls it "a memorable satire." However, New York magazine found the script "uneven" and praised only the work of Ewen Bremner and referred to the work of the other actors as "overacting." MSN movies gives it three stars out of five.
