Critic Reviews

  1. 30
    By interweaving several stories, the movie suffers from a peculiar multiplier effect: it deepens its shallowness.
  2. Baltimore Sun
    Reviewed by: Ann Hornaday
    There's less here than meets the eye, not to mention the ear, nose, tongue and fingertip.
  3. Beautifully shot and littered with disquieting character business, the film is hog-tied by its own bad Big Idea.
  4. New York Post
    Reviewed by: Jonathan Foreman
    Fake-sounding dialogue, some over-deliberate performances and five amazingly trite linked stories.
  5. A self-consciously arty ensemble piece that's alternately exploitative, implausible and cliche ridden.
  6. Reviewed by: Gemma Files
    It's all quite precious, just not in a good way: "Postmodern" to a fault, deeply shallow, infuriatingly trite.
