    Beggars could be a great one, if they don't waste their time going for sex jokes. [17 June 1999, p.1]

    If you watched "The Larry Sanders Show," you'll find that Beggars and Choosers is weak tea. [18 June 1999, p.E-10]

    A dull, plodding and predictable letdown. Apart from showing us some very lovely breasts, it squanders the freedom of pay-cable by going for obvious gags and even more obvious plot developments. [17 June 1999, p.55]
