    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    A dreadful exercise, with a script full of contradictions and empty gestures and a leading lady who's such a novice it hurts to watch her. show more

    It gets wackier as it goes, starting with Charlie Sheen cast against type as a guy who's getting no sex and turns down the chance. Bebe Neuwirth has some funny scenes as a lush. show more
