    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    The film rambles, but rambling with the mischievous Roos is still a tricky and winning proposition. show more

    The film is entertaining if contrived. It is not as cleverly structured as Roos' best ensemble comedy, "The Opposite of Sex," which also co-starred Kudrow. But it does have humorous moments. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Bills itself as a comedy but unfolds as the drollest of dramas, an extended-family album for the age of abortion, adoption and donor sperm. It's a cheeky story about turning the other cheek. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The themes are about the power and consequences of sex, but the stories are too glib and episodic to leave any impression. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    A real audience pleaser, so long as that audience is mentally agile and adult, for it comes at you from odd angles and features three distinct story lines and 10 main characters. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    There are marvelous moments and dull ones. The best asset is first-rate acting; the worst liability is Roos's overuse of cinematic gimmicks. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Maintains a certain level of intrigue, and occasionally bursts into life. show more

    Allison Benedikt Chicago Tribune

    Roos does an admirable job balancing the tragedy and comedy, but he bogs down every character with so much baggage that it's impossible to render them honestly without the captions. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Way too long, too convoluted and too peppered with title cards...Even so, it's hard to dislike Don Roos' "Magnolia"-inspired triptych of interconnected comic tales about lies, sex and video. show more
