  • Summary: Dr. Mumford (Dean) has a talent for listening. He's only been in town four months, but he's already the most popular psychologist around.

  1. Among the funniest and most satisfying films I've seen in years.
  2. A crowd-pleasing ensemble piece, whose story goes exactly where you want it to.
  3. This good-natured comedy serves up plenty of laughs while suggesting that the best experts in human psychology are plain old humans.
  4. Reviewed by: Laura Miller

    Features one of the rare complex portraits of a therapist.
  5. 50
    A little like a secular, more sophisticated "Touched by an Angel" episode.
  6. 25
    If a good laugh is needed on the next trip to the theater, please avoid this quack.
