Every character shines with such dazzling intensity and such inexhaustible comic invention that the movie becomes tiresome, like too many clowns.

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

How to take a stellar cast and do absolutely nothing with it.

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.

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

A dreadful, dreary would-be dark comedy.

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

One of the most poorly conceived, inept, and ridiculous motion pictures ever greenlighted in Hollywood.

A typical sight gag is people rollerbladding down the street carrying a Christmas tree between them. An irritated boyfriend then runs into them and knocks the tree over. Boy, that one sure put me in stitches.

Is there anything more excruciating than failed farce?

The dialogue is so bad that it's hard to believe anyone would even want to try to deliver it.

Most of the film goes awry with far too many misfired, ill-conceived gags.

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