    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    One of those comedies in which almost everything good about it is extraneous. There are funny lines and quirky bits, but in terms of story and character, the movie is empty and pointless. show more

    A strange, somewhat icky romantic comedy. [25 November 1998, p. 45] show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    It has elements of sweet romance and elements of macabre humor, and divides its characters between the two. show more
