Film critic Dustin Putman criticized Minaj's speaking voice because "its nasal quality [tends] to sound overly whiny", but he was pleased by her acting.[7] Carla Meyer, from newspaper The Sacramento Bee, gave Minaj a mixed review saying that her character, Lydia, is "written as so fierce' she borders on cartoon.
