    This is a grown-up movie, in its humor and in its wisdom about life. You need to have lived a little to understand the complexities of Tobias Allcott, who is played by James Coburn with a pitch-perfect balance between sadness and sardonic wit.
  2. Sharp, smart and robustly engaging film.

    A fine cast further illuminates a felicitous script.
  4. The cast--including Julianna Margulies, Olivia Williams, James Coburn, and Anjelica Huston--keeps this pretty watchable, and casting Mick Jagger as director of the escort service was inspired.
  5. 60
    Mick Jagger acts his age, finally, in an entertaining but ultimately disappointing fable.
  6. A listless, predictable effort, occasionally redeemed by witty lines and charismatic performers.
  7. Manure of a relatively clover-scented variety, George Hickenlooper's The Man From Elysian Fields is at primal odds with itself.
