Derek Elley of Variety wrote that it "walks a thin line ... between sympathy with and exploitation of its main character's woes". Maggie Lee of The Hollywood Reporter called it a "one trick pony" that engages in schadenfreude and sentimentality instead of living up to the premise's possibilities as a heartbreaking father-son story.
