Entertainment Weekly
If British writer-director Jez Butterworth had let his sophomore picture get as dirty as Kidman's game recklessness invited -- she started this before ''Moulin Rouge'' and ''The Others'' -- he would have served up a tasty piece of cake. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
This breathless demi-noir has so much bounce that we barely get any time to mull over the gaping holes in its moth-eaten plot. It is competent but extremely slight. Full Review
Deborah Young
Charmingly setting aside glamour for a turn at pure acting, Nicole Kidman zings up the already zingy script of Birthday Girl. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Uneven, not particularly inspired comic thriller. Full Review
James Berardinelli
The romantic comedy doesn't have much, but it has Kidman. Full Review
