  1. 75
    A meandering movie that usually meanders in entertaining directions.
  2. A smart, funny and endearing movie. It has enough cynicism to satisfy the part of DiCillo that would mock a blue-eyed superstar, yet enough genuine sentiment to make it possible for us to swallow the cynicism.
  3. A lively, well-constructed film with a large and appealing cast.
  4. Reviewed by: Jack Mathews
    By interweaving a very contemporary love story into these themes, DiCillo has at least given it all a fresh spin.
  5. The movie raises more interesting issues - often connected with the hazy lines between appearance and reality - than it's prepared to coherently explore.
  6. 50
    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.
  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.
