    • 30 Robert Horton
    A gyno-phobic fantasy about the date who won't go away.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Horton
    It may have a good liberal conscience, and genuine sympathy for the rare perspective of a homeless person, but this movie is a fundamentally sentimental exercise.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Horton
    Half vulgar and funny, half tedious and cloying; despite the shameless laughs, it's still a disappointment.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Horton
    The movie is a mess.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Horton
    There is something especially irritating about whimsy done badly.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Horton
    Nasty, regularly amusing black comedy.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Horton
    Little entertainment value.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Horton
    This movie is a business decision, and about as diverting to watch as someone reading the Universal fiscal report.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Horton
    This overdone project dissipates its energy in strange ways (sudden shifts to black-and-white, as though hailing the spirit of Oliver Stone and that other Costner JFK movie), and makes you wish its makers had shown the same restraint the government did during the crisis.

    There is no obvious reason for the film's meandering existence: it's a series of beautifully photographed postcards of Africa.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Horton
    A big disappointment.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Horton
    A standard morality tale, and looks especially weak in the shadow of "Eyes Wide Shut" and "Fight Club," which it resembles.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Horton
    Computer technology may be the actual phantom menace, after all.

    • 30 Robert Horton
    The fact that isolated bits are amusing shouldn't keep us from strongly noting that this movie really is pretty awful -- not at all worthy of guilty pleasure status.

    • 30 Robert Horton
    Floating this material slightly above the assembly-line level is the energetic cast and the efforts of writer-director Kris Isacsson.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 30 Robert Horton
    Charlize Theron has charm and skill, but no actress could survive this role, which has the gravity and verisimilitude of a sketch from a late-sixties Nancy Sinatra TV special.

    • 30 Robert Horton
    Oddly enough, I'm enjoying the memory of these jokes more than I actually enjoyed watching the film.

    • 25 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Horton
    So very general in its characters and story that it actively keeps you from enjoying the simple pleasures of a movie like this.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Horton
    Dumb and irritating.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Horton
    One of the least endurable films of 1999.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Horton
    A lot of it works for two reasons: the situation allows for plenty of business with small-town eccentrics, and Jamie Foxx has been given a loose rein in the central role.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Horton
    A clumsy and tone-deaf comedy.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Horton
    These are good people, yet the director has them carrying on like community theater actors playing to the balcony. It isn't fair to them, and it isn't fitting for Shakespeare.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Horton
    It does... apply Kitano's black-comic style to a different setting, and individual scenes sparkle with unexpected jokes, twists, and occasional cruelties.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Horton
    Slouches in as a weightless, instantly forgettable picture.

    It probably helps to be loaded while you're watching this movie.
    • 24 Metascore

    One wonders if the only original directors left are the obsessives and the freaks. This guy qualifies on both counts.

    Spending an autumn in New York is the simple part, but the rest of the year gets more complicated. Let's see a movie about that.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 20 Robert Horton
    The film looks horrendous, poorly composed and staged, and the rhythm staggers.

    This movie has straight-to-video written all over it.
