    This witlessly antic sex farce about a yuppie substance abuser coping with myriad personal issues during a stint in a rehab facility pretty much fails on every level, other than providing big-screen exposure for a passel of veteran older actors.

    A catchy but irrelevant title is the first of many problems with Excuse Me for Living, which throws together a lot of superficially flashy elements that never gel in any organic way.

    Atrocious dreck that feels sitcomish, only without the polish or panache.

    Vaguely misogynistic and defiantly paternalistic, the movie fails at nearly everything.

    No strand of Excuse Me for Living's frantic, unfunny, and pseudo-thoughtful narrative is well conceived.
