  • The film is astonishing in the amount of material it contains. It isn't thin or superficial; there is an abundance of observation and invention here. show more

  • Victoria Tennant's iciness has been well-utilized on screen occasionally, but not this time. [8 Feb 1991, p.D4] show more

  • Unlike Woody Allen's New York City, which becomes a staging area for character angst and transformation, Martin's L.A. stifles the characters. show more
