There's not a frame of truth in it.

Hruska's bloodless little fairy tale is utterly innocuous and instantly forgettable.

So laughably preposterous that it's thoroughly entertaining.

A dubious script that detonates into a full-blown disaster midway through.

Has everything you want from a good bad movie: overheated drama, overripe performances, arch characters and fruity dialogue.

Pits a substantial actor like Mary McDonnell, playing a New York madam, against a bogus story that crossbreeds noirish affectations and romantic comedy into an unpalatable mush that suggests strawberry ice cream slathered with beer.

Constantly at odds with itself -- torn between urban realism and musical fantasy, suggestive glances and frank sexuality, fashionable cynicism and old-fashioned happy endings.

Despite Emmy Rossum's vivaciousness and raw ability, not much good comes from watching 'Nola.'

This film was written and directed by a lawyer/turned filmmaker. I like the main couple Ben and Nola, but as for the story that he puts them in - I object.

Combines a worn-out premise -- young woman leaves unhappy home for big city -- with some of the silliest characters ever to reach the screen.

A tone-deaf indie that slides by on spunk until the script simply implodes.

An anemic little paean to a type of Hollywood storytelling that would have been better left undisturbed.
