Ratings & Reviews

  • Burns' movie shows a Woody.esque affection for a certain slice of New York and its denizens (with the angst and neuroses quieted down a notch or two). show more

  • The movie is funny without being hilarious, touching but not tearful, and articulate in the way that Burns is articulate, by nibbling earnestly around an idea as if afraid that the core has seeds. show more

  • Despite a synthetic optimism in the script, the movie's pervasive bleakness is relieved only by some bright performances.
