    Kudrow's Michele is a deadpan delight as she joins fellow misfit Romy (a deliciously funny Mira Sorvino).
  2. 75
    One of those pleasant movie-going experiences that doesn't offend, excite, or challenge anyone. There are all sorts of likable things about it.
  3. 75
    It has charm, a sly intelligence, and the courage to go for special effects sequences.
  4. It's the spark and surprise of good sketch comedy that makes this film really work--the laugh-out-loud moments are worth the wait.
  5. 60
    A candy-colored, superficially fizzy revenge fantasy with a startlingly corrosive undercurrent of bitterness and frustration.
  6. 50
    Isn't smart enough to cut it as the ultimate blond joke. [25 April 1997, p. 4D]

    Kudrow and Sorvino aren't really given a script to work with; most jokes consist of the two women being vacuous together.
