    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    The women's characters are as well drawn as the men's in a splendidly acted film that captures the confusion of love in ways that are ardent, affecting and wonderfully funny. show more

    Peter Stack San Francisco Chronicle

    Burns has created an endearing gathering of people we all know, and every one of them is so much fun that leaving the theater at the end elicits a touch of regret. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    This meaty Irish stew isn't arty or elliptical. It ought to connect with anyone who's survived sibling tension or romantic fence-sitting. [9 August 1995, Life, p.5D] show more

    TV Guide

    Solid, old-fashioned narrative moviemaking with just enough no-budget cachet to disguise its essential blandness. show more

    Austin Chronicle

    It is a rare treat of a film. show more
