Ed Park
Village Voice
Posner's dishearteningly unsophisticated treatment itself rings false. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
Posner paints in pretty broad strokes. The movie is studded with convenient coincidences and obvious observations. But he has also put together a nicely polished production that shines with an almost earnest charm. Full Review
Gregory Weinkauf
New Times (L.A.)
Any story's a good story if it's told well, and this one is, with chuckles to spare. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
All strained artifice, inhabited by individuals who either lack dimension or are merely stereotypes. The result is a movie not nearly as amusing as its makers may think. Full Review
Lawrence Van Gelder
The New York Times
This well-cast film does with a lighter hand for art what "The Producers" does for show business. Full Review
