    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    This comedy is packed with p---- jokes, the cruder the better. show more

    Bob Graham San Francisco Chronicle

    It's good for a few guffaws and chuckles, but in between the screen has a tendency to stretch at the corners and go flat. show more

    Nichols usually can lure A-list casts to even C-grade projects, and this is no exception. show more

    The film's asset, in a walk, is Bening, whose comic timing puts Shandling to shame. show more

    Mr. Showbiz

    This one somehow gets about 300 percent better in its last quarter-hour -- suddenly this is a movie worth watching -- and it's over. show more

    Miami Herald

    An unapologetically stupid and implausible movie, but in the best possible way -- it's so sure of itself, it wins you over. show more

    It's still easily the funniest movie of the year. show more

    Jay Carr Boston Globe

    The film is almost as shaky as the science, but Nichols knows how to get the most out of what amounts to a one-joke comedy, and Bening works virtual miracles. show more

    Ann Hornaday Baltimore Sun

    A bawdy, brainy sex comedy geared toward smart people with a sophomoric streak. show more

    Chicago Tribune

    Shandling and Nichols strain to reach a mainstream audience and wind up sounding like they, too, have been trained to tell us what we want to hear. Sorry, guys, but you don't score. show more
