Sky Cinema gave the film two out of five stars and wrote, "Despite the subject and the cast, the treatment lacks vivacity"; TV Guide rated it similarly, and wrote, "A well-tuned script takes full advantages of the possibilities for comedy, but radio star Handley is a bit of a disappointment, looking sourly out of place on the screen"; whereas the Radio Times rated it three out of five stars, concluding, "Some of the jokes have travelled less well and it falls flat in places, but it's a thoroughly entertaining romp."
