    One youngster -- even a youngster as talented as Rossum -- can't transform a mess of clichés into a little gem.
  2. So laughably preposterous that it's thoroughly entertaining.
  3. A movie that pits a substantial actor like Mary McDonnell, playing a New York madam, against a bogus story that crossbreeds noirish affectations and romantic comedy into an unpalatable mush that suggests strawberry ice cream slathered with beer.
  4. 25
    The film is lousy with cartoonishly off-putting characters.
  5. So awful it's hypnotizing.

    Screwball it isn't, but it has screwy down pat.

    Screwball elements feel overly theatrical -- one can almost see the actors waiting calmly in the wings for their breathless entrances.
