Critical ReceptionEdit

The reviews for "The Return of Bruno" were mixed.

People magazine gave it a "B" plus, calling Willis' cover version of "Under the Boardwalk" "surprisingly okay", noting additionally that it "show us that he can't shout songs quite as well as Don Johnson. So Springsteen, he ain't. Funny, he is."

Allmusic wrote that Willis "doesn't have the conviction or skill of the Blues Brothers", adding that the album today is a "little more than a kitsch artifact."
