    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    If you want to direct a movie that's already been done, it's a good idea to pick one you can improve on. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    A game and often quite funny attempt with an expert cast. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    Everyone tries very hard to make the story sweet and funny, but the soggy screenplay defeats them every time. show more

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    Nicely shot around New York City, this dodgy mixture of cutesy romance, dark satire and murder mystery uses the same central conceit as Neil LaBute's "Nurse Betty." show more

    Chuck Wilson L.A. Weekly

    Gerber has a sharp cast at hand -- All work furiously, yet the director, with his fake backdrops and stately pacing, never settles on a consistent tone. Surely the novel had more bite. show more

    Jean Oppenheimer New Times (L.A.)

    Nominal comedy has a few bright spots but never seems to find its rhythm. show more

  • 30

    Tries to combine romantic comedy, soap-opera parody and murder mystery, but the disparate elements never gel, and the film, about homicide at a daytime television serial, bounces around with no clue of how to reconcile or intertwine its genre conventions. show more

    Village Voice

    Sluggish, tonally uneven -- In fact, it doesn't even rise to the level of 1991's Soapdish, with the feverishly mugging Elisabeth Shue sending up TV's cesspool of sentimentality. show more

    Manohla Dargis Los Angeles Times

    A dreary indulgence. An unfunny satire set in the world of daytime soap opera, it isn't offensive enough to inspire passionate response. show more

    Stephen Holden The New York Times

    An excruciating demonstration of the unsalvageability of a movie saddled with an amateurish screenplay. show more
