    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. So awful it's hypnotizing.
  5. 25
    The film is lousy with cartoonishly off-putting characters.

    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.
