    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Stocked with an impressively high-quality collection of New York actors. Unfortunately, in asking them all to play such unlikable characters, Walsh flushes too much of that talent down the drain. show more

    Neither Parker nor Donovan is a typical romantic lead, but they bring a fresh, quirky charm to the formula. Nor are their characters typical meet-cute types: David and Toni are imperfect people who are some how perfect for each other. show more

    A.O. Scott The New York Times

    It's clear that this is a farce about ambition that is not ambitious enough, right down to its cutesy, punning title. show more
