Stephen Holden from The New York Times gave the movie a dreadful review but remarked that the "best line in the movie" is spoken by Minaj as Lydia ("Selfish people live forever"). Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times film critic, called Minaj a "scene-stealing", and Richard Lawson from Vanity Fair magazine, called her "a lead who groove well together with seemingly minimal effort" and "an underused treat". U-T San Diego's film writer Jake Coyle applauded Minaj's "excellent use of her few minutes as Carly's assistant".
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. 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. But Minaj is funny and charismatic."
