Consensus: This one-dimensional comedy with recycled laughs will have you holding your nose.

Robert Horton

Love Stinks offers up the very modest pleasures of a middling TV show, something you'd watch only if the cable went out on a Friday night.

Jeff Millar
Houston Chronicle

Sometimes it stinks with the sweat of failure. But sometimes it's as bitterly funny as its makers could hope.

Michael Dequina

With 3rd Rock from the Sun's French Stewart in the lead, it's hard to not think 'sitcom' while watching this 'un-romantic comedy.'

Cate McQuaid
Boston Globe

Love Stinks is such a paean to television, it would have done better to go straight to video, where it belongs.

Lisa Schwarzbaum
Entertainment Weekly

Holy mother of the bride, what bile was Jeff Franklin drinking when he came up with this curdled revenge fantasy?

Rob Vaux
Flipside Movie Emporium

They got one word in the title right.

Michael Atkinson
Mr. Showbiz

A cut-rate romantic comedy of the kind that Adam Sandler would star in if his movies made no money.

Rod Dreher
New York Post

Jeff Franklin's idea of cutting-edge comedy writing runs to the kind of vulgar, unfunny shtick that puts the gag in 'gag.'

Mike Kerrigan
Boxoffice Magazine

A sitcom episode stretched to fit, with raunch and language added for shock effect and cheap laughs.
