As drama, it's not much; as a meditation on language and storytelling, it's a treat.

Viewers learn that these salty guys have salty imaginations and that Mamet's a master at capturing their thoughts in discursive detail.

Joe Mantegna... brings just the right tone of easy gab and tossed-off tales to this actor's showcase.

If you're an admirer of [Mamet's] work, or if you're willing to be as patiently observant as Dale, you will find much that is fascinating and illuminating.

A first-rate movie made from one of David Mamet's lesser plays.

The magic is in the words, and there's always laughter, anger and sadness to be found in David Mamet's poetry of inarticulateness.

If you like David Mamet's men and their crazily profane arguments, you'll be happy you came.

Forster is the reason that even non-Mamet-heads might consider giving Lakeboat a shot.

Little more than a succession of acting exercises....But who cares when the dialogue is so meaty and the performances so canny?
