Mr. Hughes, having thought up the characters and simply flung them together, should have left well enough alone.

This review should be amended. The NY Times included this movie on its 1000 best movies list. So, why leave it as rotten??

im confused why this one extracted line qualifies as a rotten review, Ms Maslin praises some of the performances and goes on to give a decently positive review, plus it leads with "critic's pick"
