    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Chases so many ideas that it threatens to spin out of control. But with our multiplexes stuffed with toxic Hollywood formula, it's a gift to find a ballsy movie that thinks it can do anything, and damn near does. show more

    Not only (Kaufman's) most accessible and romantic screenplay, it's his most complete. The third act works like a charm and pulls all his themes, characters and conflicts together beautifully. show more

    Definitely one of my favorite movies. the writers for this film had the most honest dialogue i've seen in a movie in a very long time. and also the way Jim Carrey played this very melancolly, mopey guy was top notch in his acting abilities. Awesome awesome awesome!!1
