…Right from the get-go, [“Chasing Papi”] feels too frenetic and, worse yet, forced. That results in what might have been an enjoyable enough diversion coming off as annoying and hyperactive…
—ScreenIt!
…Both the moral content and the entertainment value of this film are low, so you would be better off spending your time on something other than “Chasing Papi”…
—Alan Boyer, Preview Family Movie and TV Review
…The moral of the story? If he’s cute enough, it doesn’t matter how much of a cad he is. It’s simply not very funny watching three beautiful women fight over a scrap that fell off the XY table… Don’t let Jaci [Velasquez’s] starring role mislead your family. Chase teens and tweens away from Papi…
