  • A turgid mess of a film that has a lot of ideas on its mind, none of which prove very interesting or in fact coherent. show more

  • Nothing in this movie is properly focused; everyone keeps talking about a character whom we never meet and does not matter; the tone keeps slipping around from indolent satire to thudding sincerity, and the Challenger shuttle disaster backdrop is queasy-making at best, offensive at worst. show more

  • Glatzer's self-consciously quirky indie is misguided on every level. show more
