‘Deliriously wry and so perfectly balanced it should become a case study in script classes… Comparisons with the Coen brothers will be inevitable.’ - Jay Weissberg, Variety
‘If you loved the bloody, dark-edged comedy of 2011’s Headhunters, it will be clear-the-hell-out-of-your-diary viewing.’ - Phil De Semlyen, Time Out
