  • Goldthwait's movie, shot on video that makes it look dragged through puppy poop, is an unholy mess. But it also possesses a quick wit and an endearing tenderness toward Amy as honesty wrecks her life. It's sweet, doggone it. show more

  • Lacks the marquee names and production values of big studio romantic comedies, but it connects on an emotional level most of them fail to do. show more

  • Goldthwait explores his themes more thoughtfully than you'd expect, but ultimately, we know just how things will end. And what's subversive about that? show more
