Critic Reviews

  1. Reviewed by: Ernest Hardy
    A good, though unremarkable, film.
  2. Deftly mixes rueful sentimentality and trenchant observations about the constantly shifting balance of power that drives relationships.
  3. We have a right to yawn, but we don't, and Sarah Polley is the reason.
  4. 50
    Except for Polley and Rea, the performances are heavy-handed.
  5. Bogs down during several fuzzily romantic interludes.
  6. 50
    It doesn't take Rea long to decide that he's more interested in extending his record for Longest Acting Career Sustained on One Expression, and he's back to his baggy-eyed, hangdog look.
  7. 40
    Partly because the seducer's technique is methodical--as a former conquest explains to the naive heroine--the movie's answers are too easy.
