Elvis Mitchell
The New York Times
Ms. Foster and the screenwriter, W. D. Richter, have given this film some peculiar mood swings, so that it starts out zanily and winds down to a wistful note. Full Review
Emanuel Levy
But Foster is unable to give the episodic, fragmented film a coherent feel; her prosaic, sometimes irritating picture proceeds scene by scene, with the requisite climaxes and anticlimaxes along the bumpy road. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Foster's film offers its fair share of laughs, although most come at the expense of "easy mark" characters. Dramatically, however, the movie is only a step up from a flop. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
What results is a film with some bright spots but whose effect is finally as muddled and wearying as the event itself sometimes is. Full Review
Marjorie Baumgarten
Austin Chronicle
Overall, the movie stresses the more painful and awkward moments; moments that might be classified as "heartwarming" are rare. This results in a very cynical tone and I suspect that was not the desired effect. Full Review
