USA Today

Charles Taylor
A slack, tepid picture stuck in a no man's land between satire and drama. Full Review
David Edelstein

Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Guilty, deftly orchestrated fun. Full Review
Elvis Mitchell
The New York Times
It's a movie struggling with its own identity crisis, and with the obvious constraints created by its subject matter. Full Review
