The director is ... rather distracted; John Landis seems to be browsing through the scenes rather than gobbling them down. full review

Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine

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. full review

Variety Staff, Variety

A screenplay that seems to have escaped its doctors before it was entirely well. full review

Vincent Canby, New York Times

The main pleasure in America comes in the romancing of prince and pauper. But the comedy is a mere handmaiden. full review

Desson Thomson, Washington Post

In Landis' hands, the film doesn't live up to even the meagerest of expectations. full review
