  • Falk is as good as ever and the rest give it their all; you couldn't ask for a better cast, just better material. show more

  • The movie's one-star rating is solely for Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who provides eye candy as Morris' film-student granddaughter, Lisa. show more

  • Generally, this film is lively and entertaining. The dialogue among the four principals trips along at a brisk pace, never becoming overly dense or plodding. show more
