Washington Post
May not be perfect but must be given credit for all that it does right. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
By the end, after an hour and a half of wondering -- sometimes amusedly, sometimes impatiently -- just what this strenuously unconventional movie is supposed to be, you discover that the answer is as conventional as can be. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
From the get-go, the story remains bogged down in its rather limited morass. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
A listless, predictable effort, occasionally redeemed by witty lines and charismatic performers. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
A shimmering fable of innocence and experience set in contemporary Los Angeles and Pasadena (its title is a nod to Virgil's "Aeneid"). Phillip Jayson Lasker's tartly knowing script, with the kind of witty dialogue that's all but vanished from American movies, recalls Hickenlooper's "The Low Life." Full Review
