Time Out saysGenerally juvenile and crass spoof of Hitchcock thrillers, filching themes and scenes from Vertigo, Psycho, The Birds, Spellbound, etc, in its story of a psychologist going to work at a very strange and sinister Institute for the Very Very Nervous. Most of the gags are either incredibly obvious or depressingly scatological, or both. But there are a couple of nice touches, one satirising Hitchcock's use of orchestral scores, and the other his relentlessly prowling, voyeuristic camera.
