Bogs down in weak dramaturgy about love and commitment.

Find this funny? So do I. But not for two hours.

Film Blather

The film's set-up fits a Saturday Night Live sketch better than a full-length movie.

Steve Biodrowski

The film never lives up to the brilliance of its own premise.

The only eruption this movie evokes is a loud yawn.

Thirteen year-old boys would love the film if they could get into this R-rated picture.

Garry Shandling drops his pants for his art in What Planet Are You From?, and it isn't a pretty sight.

The script fails to make anything amusing or satirically clever.

The film just sort of lies there -- inspiration gone, premise spent, synthentic possibilities utterly exhausted.

Jack Garner
Rochester Democrat and Chronicle

Shandling has such a narrow acting range. He seems like an emotionless alien from beginning to end, especially in contrast to Bening.

If you're expecting humor of the Sanders quality here, you won't get it, nor will you find that Shandling has a wide enough range as an actor.

Nichols' film is distinctive from his other sex comedies in that it aims lower than the brain.

It gives new meaning to the overused adage that men are from Mars, women are from Venus.

Love Shandling? Me too ... go see it. Hate Shandling ... don't see it. (I liked it a lot!)

This loony battle of the sexes flick offers a generous supply of laughs for fans of broad humor and actor/screenwriter Garry Shandling.

A rather sweet fable about sincerity.

A high-profile T&A comedy, albeit an enjoyable one.

Easily the funniest movie of the year.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

The crudity and vulgarity of the material is balanced by the characters' genuine warmth and the film's loopy charm.
