[Roos's] dialogue (including an on-and-off voiceover by Ricci's pregnant, runaway sociopath) has a ringing clarity, his satire is low-key but quite real, and his actors mesh so perfectly you'd swear they rehearsed for months before shooting.

Opposite attracts with its wit.

For all the cynicism on the soundtrack and the occasional lapses in tone, this is a remarkably generous comedy.
