Time Out says
Quite a challenge for the congenitally meek Nick, so he creates a moustachioed, Gauloise-puffing alter ego François Dillinger to say and do things he can’t quite manage himself, setting in motion sundry jolly japes and escalating mayhem which complicate the pursuit of his affections. The tone throughout is moderately quirky rather than full-on teen-flick vulgarian, bolstered by indie-cred cameos from Steve Buscemi (his nervy dad) and Ray Liotta (his mom’s psycho-cop suitor), and garnished with cute animated interludes. A little of everything, actually, which almost disguises the fact that the movie’s not overly amusing, never truly insightful and trying rather too hard to be cultish. But we do like the Cera boy. We really do.
