Critic Reviews

  1. Not even veteran talents like Dukakis and Scheider can surmount the artificial dialogue, arbitrary plot twists, and wan humor of this disappointing comedy-drama.
  2. Mr. Showbiz

    Better, as they say, than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick -- but only just.
  3. Made in 1998, the picture sags beneath the leaden weight of its pre-millennial theme.
  4. 30
    Feels like an early rehearsal for a play where all the movement is being coordinated but the underlying emotional notes have yet to be set.
  5. It's all terribly schematic, thematically obvious and not in the least bit funny.
  6. Reviewed by: Oliver Jones

    Vibrant, snappy and surprisingly fresh.
