  • Each actor is unusually watchful and wily, and their actorly competition underscores the one-upmanship of their characters. show more

  • It's slapdash, crudely crafted and resolutely adolescent. And occasionally, though only occasionally, very funny.

  • It's good fun for a while, especially the therapy sessions that feature Luis Guzman as a gay hood with a paunch he covers in Day-Glo spandex and John Turturro as Dave's "anger buddy." John C. Reilly also scores as a bully turned Buddhist monk. show more
