Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: Its attitude is poised somewhere between the deadpan ghoulishness of the Coen brothers and a Letterman-like sense of the absurdity of life in New York's rich ethnic stew.

- Dave Kehr, New York Daily News, Friday, August 2, 2013

Fresh: The smartest, funniest, and best-looking sci-fi comedy since the movies learned to morph.

- David Edelstein, Slate, Tuesday, June 5, 2007

Fresh: It's so much fun, in fact, that it's almost over before you realise that you've been watching a great idea for a movie in desperate search of a plot.

- Derek Adams, Time Out, Thursday, February 9, 2006

I can't stand Will Smith, Fiorentino is hot. Aside from that the movie is actually funny for the most part.
