    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    Much of the action onscreen doesn't ring true. Seasoned independent film director Henry Jaglom doesn't just explore the subject - he smothers the audience with it. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Unfortunately, whatever father/daughter, time/memory, music/therapy issues Jaglom is striving to invoke here come across as mostly psychobabble and immaturity. show more

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    Has some witty dialogue and sprightly performances by Karen Black, Andrea Marcovicci, Victoria Tennant and others. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Los Angeles Times

    Like its central character, Henry Jaglom's 16th feature is gangly and graceful, awkward and tender, a jumble of astute observation and clunkily heightened reality. show more

    Variety

    Breezy and indulgent, his is a style that lives or dies on the appeal of his characters and performers, and this time he is mostly let down by both. show more

    Jeannette Catsoulis The New York Times

    Smothering insightful moments in verbal and musical treacle (courtesy of Harriet Schock’s sticky songs), Mr. Jaglom displays an endearing lack of cynicism but an equal lack of discipline. show more
