The movie did not do well with the critics, getting a 21% "rotten" rating on, with the critical consensus that it "deserves a few points for ambition, but its tonal juggling act — and a deeply maudlin twist may leave viewers gaping in disbelief rather than choking back tears." While on Metacritic it received a 31 out of 100. The general audiences' reaction to the movie was mixed: it had an audience score of 64% on and a user score of 4.6 on Metacritic, while IMDb's rating was a 6.5.
