  1. Confidently directed and elegantly designed, this smart drama is sensitive, sympathetic and refreshingly free of glib moralizing.
  2. Great trash, one of those mediocre movies that in its own crass way is more enjoyable than most things that get nominated for Oscars.
  3. A preposterous, prurient whodunit.
  4. Clearly the product of an editing-room scramble, New Best Friend is a self-lambasting farce, despite Kirshner's passionate college try at establishing a third dimension in a brain-dead movie flatland.
  5. Struggles awkwardly to bring a twist or two to its hoary class-conscious story line, aiming for a subtlety in character development that's smothered by excessive kitsch and kink.
  6. Seems to exist solely to prove there is something beneath the bottom of the barrel.
