The film's examination of the first-generation American experience feels fresh. The delivery, however, is hardly original.Los Angeles TimesAugust 11, 2016
It's a root-worthy picture with its share of warm, amusing moments, an attractive pair of leads and a vivid use of Big Apple locales.VarietyAugust 05, 2016

[A] predictable but occasionally endearing romantic comedy.Slant MagazineAugust 01, 2016
The very few instances where stereotypes are challenged are forced and didactically delivered.New York TimesAugust 04, 2016
