    Wonderful...It's funny and offbeat, sometimes raucous, but it still manages to come at you in gentle layers.

    It's much closer to a European film in sensibility than to one of Hollywood's factory products.
  3. Despite its familiar formula, feels fresh.
  4. Peter Farrelly is angry at Miramax for marketing his and his brother Bobby's new film as a follow-up to their surprise smash hit, "There's Something About Mary."
  5. Outside of a smart performance by Shawn Hatosy as Tim Dunphy, there just isn't much that's enlightening or new in this intimate recollection.
  6. 50
    Reeks of the kind of atmosphere that makes you reach for the Lysol.
  7. 30
    Smug, uninsightful light drama.
