  1. Adequately breezy and sleazy -- a movie about the horniest man in the universe looking for a little one-night stand.
  2. 25
    Here is the most uncomfortable movie of the new year, an exercise in feel-good smut.
  3. 20
    Quite possibly, this could have been a hit back in 1975 or so, and almost certainly for Blake Edwards, but here and now it's just a puzzling aberration.
  4. 20
    Bening's prickliness is pure delight, but there's only so much she can do. It's a terrible fate for an actress to be upstaged by a humming p----.
  5. 20
    Shandling comes off as a sleazebag -- all that's missing are the gold chains, tufted chest hair and English Leather.
  6. Sporadically funny, often strange and almost never poignant.
  7. Reviewed by: Richard Schickel

    At once smug and lazy, qualities fatal to comedy.
  8. 10
    Wants to be sweet and dark at the same time, but it is as distant as a planet's satellite.

    The combination of Shandling's button-down TV sensibility and Nichols's good taste produces a film whose tone is out of sync with the simple, ribald conceit and is only mildly amusing at best.
