    With its dry, throwaway humor and constant stream of chuckles, it creates its own category of stealth comedy. show more

    Susan Wloszczyna USA Today

    With the astonishingly assured newcomer Jason Schwartzman to bounce off of, Murray has his best comic foil since those feisty rodents in Groundhog Day and Caddyshack. [5 February 1999, Life, p.11E] show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    One of the great things about this unpredictable, exhilaratingly goofy fable is how it shows that even the clueless - and the tragically morose - have a shot at redemption. show more

    Seems torn between conflicting possibilities: It's structured like a comedy, but there are undertones of darker themes, and I almost wish they'd allowed the plot to lead them into those shadows. show more

    Cult clasic in my circle of friends and family. One of the best movies ever made - period.
