  1. Cheerful and unpretentious.
  2. The only thing more disappointing than a truly awful film is a merely weak one that has some really fun moments.
  3. Feeble and formulaic.
  4. 38
    So unremittingly vulgar and inept it makes "The Best Man" and "Runaway Bride" look like masterpieces by comparison.
  5. 30
    Viewers have almost two hours to become thoroughly disgusted.
  6. Reviewed by: Betsy Sherman

    A vapid, charmless update of Buster Keaton's 1925 film "Seven Chances."
  7. 10
    Hellish matrimonial misfire.
