    Julia Roberts glitters like gold dust, and she is ideally partnered with Rupert Everett, who gives a witty, wicked, bust-out performance. show more

    The real casting disaster is Mulroney. His blandness in the role makes it impossible to believe two beautiful women would fight over him. show more

    Susan Wloszczyna USA Today

    Mulroney is a drip with not a milliliter of chemistry with either woman. Roberts doesn't really seem to care about him so much as the fact that life is passing her by. Though, that may be the point. show more

    Russell Smith Austin Chronicle

    It does effectively recall those bygone days when impossibly attractive, charming, and endearingly flawed characters dressed to kill, smoked like creosote plants, and behaved atrociously on the way to rapturous romantic consummation. show more
