Claudia Puig
USA Today
With Bonham Carter's been-there, done-that performance and a plot that spins out of control, we end up with a movie that you can't quite sink your teeth into. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
Nothing is particularly believable here, but there are still a few moments of silly, sinister fun. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
It's too bad the movie's intriguing effect wears off (so to speak) about two-thirds through. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
Quite apart from wringing the last molecule of vividness from his freewheeling roster of loose cannons, he brings to his direction of Martin a finesse shared by only a few of the directors who have worked with the comedian-actor. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Starts out stylishly, and promisingly, but then coarsens into a silly parody of film noir. Full Review
