Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: The] film is hardly memorable, but it's amusing enough for two hours, and it never panders or cloys.

- Amy Taubin, Village Voice, Saturday, January 1, 2000

Fresh: Smooth-flowing direction, a shrewdly pruned script and a top-flight ensemble cast that visibly relishes both the dialogue and one another's perfs make this a tony item for upscale, mature audiences.

- Derek Elley, Variety, Thursday, June 19, 2008

Rotten: T]his Husband plods and ambles and bears the burden of a soundtrack that resembles a wimpy meditation tape.

- Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle, Saturday, January 1, 2000
