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. Full Review
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. Full Review
David Sterritt
Christian Science Monitor
Everyone tries very hard to make the story sweet and funny, but the soggy screenplay defeats them every time. Full Review
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. Full Review
Jean Oppenheimer
New Times (L.A.)
Nominal comedy has a few bright spots but never seems to find its rhythm. Full Review
