  1. 75
    A meandering movie that usually meanders in entertaining directions.
  2. A sharp, engaging look at what it's like to be hungry and not-so-young in New York.
  3. A lively, well-constructed film with a large and appealing cast.
  4. Under the veneer of hip lies a bland romantic comedy wrapped in a layer of less-than-biting lifestyle satire, whose single most authentic moment involves an old woman and her scruffy mutt Buddy. Not cool.

    An adequate attempt, but sorry, it's just not groundbreaking.
  6. The movie raises more interesting issues - often connected with the hazy lines between appearance and reality - than it's prepared to coherently explore.
  7. 20
    Cute and smarmy are nothing new for writer-director Tom DiCillo; what is new is the crushingly unfunny fusion of the two he's hit upon for this film.
