    A sly little comic treasure.
  2. Dunst and Williams...turn ditsiness into a frenetic comic duet.
  3. A gaily funny, shrewdly inventive satire.
  4. A highly original, often hilarious, what-if farce about Watergate.
  5. Madhouse satire manages to disarm the second you realize it's laughing with you - and sometimes harder.
