The film received mixed to average reviews from critics. The New York Times critic praised the director DeMonaco for "adroitly weaving violence, absurdity and sentiment, even an environmental consciousness, into a modest, appealing fable", while the reviewer from The New York Daily News blamed him for "wasting a strong cast in silly roles".
