The young actresses Graham and Wagner here create two characters who feel whole, distinct and weighty.

An edgy, gabby, salaciously subversive sex farce.
Top Critic

You gotta admire a director who can come up with a way to hang out in such luxurious digs for two weeks, acting out sexual situations with three of the dishiest young actors in the business.

A lively, if slender, perpetuation of the battle between the sexes on a modern battleground.

Writer-director James Toback must believe his audience is hopelessly prudish if he thinks this pedantic story, which takes place over several hours in a Manhattan loft, is provocative.

Toback has somehow managed to prolong and expand this sketchy egg-on-your-face situation with a series of unexpected ironies and power role reversals that are not without wit, humor and intelligence.

A small movie with some big moments and a lot of unfinished business.

Two Girls and a Guy isn't a satisfying movie, but Downey is alarmingly brilliant in it.

Robert Downey Jr.'s Blake Allen is enough of a raging dynamo to find the dark humor and desperate romanticism at the heart of Mr. Toback's ego trip of a premise, and to make Blake sympathetic too.

Wagner doesn't wink at the audience to let it know she's not as ignorant and naive as the character she plays. It's a performance that risks being misunderstood, and it probably will be.

Downey's last scene knocks the wind out of you: You may feel you need a moment or two before you can get up out of your seat.

Sometimes the story behind a movie can bring an angle to what's on the screen.
