    Wonderful...It's funny and offbeat, sometimes raucous, but it still manages to come at you in gentle layers.
  2. Corrente's gift for evoking the lives of blue-collar men that made his debut film, "Federal Hill," so appealing blends perfectly with the antic sensibility of the Farrellys.
  3. Reviewed by: Janet Maslin
    Eminently likable...a splendid performance from Alec Baldwin in a far cry from his usual roles.
  4. Reviewed by: Ernest Hardy
    Entertaining as it often is, Outside Providence feels as if it were a collection of installments from an unusually raunchy television series.
  5. Reviewed by: Jay Carr
    It's much closer to a European film in sensibility than to one of Hollywood's factory products.
