Scott of The New York Times gave this film a score of 3/5, and said that "For me, Cirque du Soleil will always be associated with the movie Knocked Up, in which the characters played by Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd take in a performance of Mystère under the influence of hallucinogenic mushrooms. If such a trip is not to your taste, or if a trip to Las Vegas is not on your calendar, you might opt for the relatively inexpensive, mildly mind-blowing Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away, a new 3-D movie directed by Andrew Adamson." The film incorporates acts from the seven Cirque du Soleil shows running in Las Vegasin 2011: O, Mystère, Kà, Love, Zumanity, Viva Elvis and Criss Angel Believe.
