  1. A train wreck you can't help but watch.

    It's heady in the beginning, chaotic throughout, and numb with the suddenness of the Internet economy's plummet at the end.

    When Sordid Lives does what it does best -- showing Southern gals in the full flight of rabid self-denial -- it's as screamingly funny as this subgenre can get.
  4. 50
    Some of the performances are remarkably natural amid so much farce.
  5. Has its moments here and there, but not nearly enough of them to add up to a satisfying movie.
  6. 30
    To call this campy would be charitable.
  7. The laughs come in all the wrong places when they come at all.
