A dark comedy that's artificially dark and is never very funny.

There's a good movie somewhere in here trying to escape... the audience can relate to that desire.

Drew comes through for us. Her easy charm and winning smile put us back on track, giving us something familiar and wonderful to cling to.

What's interesting is pretty much unintentional, centering in the film's performances, which are excellent indeed.

Barrymore waddles through scene after scene in a variety of shabby housedresses and fussy, fluffy sweaters, the kinds of ridiculous clothes Hollywood seems for some reason to believe downtrodden young women in the Midwest actually wear.

It's one thing to be offbeat, and another thing entirely to be off-pitch.

For every good performance and delightful, well-written scene, there would be a large amount of off-the-wall material that did not work at all.
