  1. 80
    Superior 2002 farce by Walsh, Roberts, and Katie Roberts, all veterans of Chicago's ImprovOlympic who went on to form the Upright Citizens Brigade.
  2. 75
    The film is faithful to its absurdities, sometimes hilariously so.

    A wacky comedy involving a suicidal marketing executive and his highly irreverent shrink, Martin & Orloff ultimately doesn't fully succeed in its comedic aspirations, but it does offer some genuine laughs along the way.
  4. In general, movies made by improv comedy groups are hit or miss. And this one, from the Upright Citizens Brigade, misses a whole lot more than it hits.
  5. 40
    Mostly, its unearned funnier-than-thou smugness plays like a DIY dorm-lounge homage.

    Extending skit comedy into full-length form is a tricky and, despite lots of snappy acerbic wordplay and inspired zany moments, pic works only intermittently.
  7. 38
    Might have worked as a 10-minute sketch.
