The director is ... rather distracted; John Landis seems to be browsing through the scenes rather than gobbling them down.
Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine  full review
 
Starts on a bathroom joke, quickly followed by a gag about private parts, then wanders in search of something equally original for Eddie Murphy to do for another couple of hours.
Variety Staff, Variety  full review
 
A screenplay that seems to have escaped its doctors before it was entirely well.
Vincent Canby, New York Times  full review
 
The main pleasure in America comes in the romancing of prince and pauper. But the comedy is a mere handmaiden.
Desson Thomson, Washington Post  full review
 
In Landis' hands, the film doesn't live up to even the meagerest of expectations.
Hal Hinson, Washington Post  full review
