    An entertaining but insubstantial romantic thriller loaded with Euro-chic trappings and no small amount of sex appeal.
  2. A solidly crafted, entertaining melodrama.
  3. You may roll your eyes a bit at the glib, transparent, indie-grunge romanticism.
  4. Reviewed by: Rod Dreher
    That insinuating, sublime atmosphere is consistently being intruded upon by the distractingly silly plot.
  5. Reviewed by: Anita Gates
    The best part of B. Monkey is reveling in the dark side of Rupert Everett.
  6. Reviewed by: Marsha McCreadie
    A sort of "Pretty Woman" for the underworld.

    B. Monkey is crawling with smart actors saying things they don't quite mean.
  8. As skilled, resourceful actors, (Argento and Harris) make...a more believable couple than you would have thought possible.
  9. 40
    Overall the film is a stylish lark with no resonance, a mean-spirited one-night stand of a movie.
  10. 20
    Unfortunately, none of the characters -- despite the film's strong cast -- ever seems worthy of the attention.
