  • Though saddled with hoary jokes, Goldberg at least pumps some funky life into the bland proceedings. show more

  • A wonderful movie, sincere and inspired, with four terrific performances and a story that doesn't let up. The picture has the gentle, nourishing quality of a fairy tale that you want to believe, and the unsoftened impact of gut-level entertainment. [13 July 1990, Daily Datebook, p.E1]

  • It's an unpredictable, mesmerizing journey nearly every shady second of the way. show more
