Critic Reviews

  1. Sorvino and Kudrow, for whatever inscrutable reasons, seem to be having a blast with their ridiculous characters, and both shine in the loopy set-pieces and dream sequences that pepper the story.
  2. This sloppy, pleasant comedy by playwright and TV producer Robin Schiff (Almost Perfect) is an amiable mess, a padded-out expansion of a play called "Ladies' Room."
  3. 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.

    As lightweight as it is, it's easy to feel real affection for the movie.
  5. Kudrow and Sorvino aren't really given a script to work with; most jokes consist of the two women being vacuous together.
  6. Okay, some of this is mildly diverting.
  7. A candy-colored, superficially fizzy revenge fantasy with a startlingly corrosive undercurrent of bitterness and frustration.

    Isn't smart enough to cut it as the ultimate blond joke. [25 April 1997, p. 4D]

    Desperately uncertain in tone and able to generate only sporadic laughs, pic decks out its meager story of revenge and comeuppance with a vulgar, flashy shimmer that will no doubt attract teenage girls, or the core "Clueless" audience.
