Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: Homework assignment: Is the decision to change both the title and the thrust of Mamet's play evidence of perversity or of perversion? Due tomorrow. Class dismissed.

- Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer, Thursday, February 13, 2014

Rotten: The shocks of recognition are largely absorbed by the standard narrative structure that replaces Mamet's blackouts; the characters, instead of functioning as archetypes, look underwritten, half alive.

- Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Thursday, February 13, 2014

Fresh: This is the yuppie drama that St. Elmo`s Fire wanted to be but wasn't.

- Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune, Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Light romantic drama is based on David Mamet's play, Sexual Perversity in Chicago, which he adapted for the screen here. Detailed look at modern relationships reveals how a one night stand becomes a full fledged affair. Each person has a different idea about where the relationship should be headed. Loud, generic pop soundtrack is a liability, but overall, the compelling performances and humorous script make for an entertaining movie.

Demi ***ing Moore. She is truly a pox on the cinema going public. Another turd in her repertoire, this rom com is full of plastic people in the 80s droning on about "relationships". Zzzzzzzzz...
