Critic Reviews

  1. 75
    Not a great, breakout comedy, but more the kind of movie that might eventually become a regular on the midnight cult circuit.
  2. This is one light comedy whose seriousness, hours later, lingers in the mind.
  3. 70
    As a ditz who's just smart enough to know something isn't right, Lyonne blends hyperbole and sincerity in perfect proportions.
  4. 70
    Not as skillful, subtle, or hilarious as "Some Like It Hot," but its anti-essentialism vis-à-vis gender roles is just as sharp and exhilarating.

    It's the year's funniest, most absurd sight gag.
  6. Amusing and good-natured, but necessarily thin.
