Austin Chronicle
Executive producer and screenwriter Audrey Wells' script portrays most of the men as repulsively one-dimensional; the women fare only slightly better as two-dimensional beings: smart and plain, or dumb and drop-dead gorgeous. Full Review
Brian Lowry
What really makes The Truth About Cats & Dogs special in places however, is Garofalo's dry, self-effacing wit and Thurman's ditzy, old-style Hollywood glamour. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
It has its own sunsplashed vitality, thanks to spirited writing by Audrey Wells and winning performances from all three principals. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
You can see the outcome from a distance, but Michael Lehmann ("Heathers") directs with such snap, and the actors play their concert of comic duets and trios with such skill and charm, that The Truth About Cats & Dogs emerges a surprising, first-rate romantic comedy. Full Review
Jack Mathews
Los Angeles Times
From the moment we meet Abby, whimsically soothing her callers, we're turned into lap dogs, ready to follow her -- ready to follow Garofalo -- anywhere. Full Review
