Quirky, enjoyable comedy with an unknown Parker Posey on roller skates and Adam Sandler being charming in a real minor part.

Director/co-scripter Nora Ephron pitches the humor at a cacophonous level and displays the comedic equivalent of two left feet in evolving an absurdist, slapstick yarn.

A relentlessly hectic, poorly structured farce that falls embarrassingly flat.

The beginning of Steve Martin's non-funny comedies. Ephron should know better as well.

Martin's comedic talents show no signs of life in this truly abysmal adaptation of a superior French farce...

Ephron's timing and sensitivity have deserted her, leaving behind only the sentimentality.

Terrible comedy with a few amusing moments. Not dark enough on one end, not silly enough on the other.

A title song incorporating the names of nut varieties is only one of the film's desperate ploys.

Steve Martin can be good, and also very, very bad. This is an example of the latter.
