    Michael WilmingtonChicago Tribune

    (Matthau's) is a truly magical performance: hilarious, unguarded and deeply touching.

    They make a believable trio of siblings, but not even their combined wit can lift this script above the maudlin.

    A lame, glossy and disastrously misconceived film about three ditsy sisters dealing with the death of their horrible father.
