Charles Taylor
Even dressed up in tabloid lighting and cut with jagged edits, this pulp nihilism never goes beyond daytime TV banality. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
Completed before the release of "American Beauty," this contrived, puffed up little picture nonetheless seems like a ripoff, perhaps because it mines the same tired assumptions and unexamined stereotypes about suburban family life. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
Sloppy, self-satisfied and surprisingly heartfelt. Full Review
Ernest Hardy
The whole point is nothing more than the revelation that the terrain of suburbia is populated with damaged people inflicting damage on others. This is still news? Full Review
Jessica Winter
Village Voice
Often succumbs to the craven hysteria perhaps inherent in its hoary premise. Full Review
