Andreas, working from Jesse Archer's reductive script, knows how to pump energy into tired ideas and turn twinkly stereotypes into high-camp icons.

If you're paying attention, you won't be able to ignore the scattershot plotting, the synthetic emotions, the highly variable quality of the acting and the woodenness of Jesse Archer's script when it isn't dealing in one-liners.

It's hard to swallow such a dubious message when it's made via schematic, preposterous plotting that stacks the deck in favor of its protagonists' happily-ever-afters.

... the road to love is strewn with one-liners and musical interludes, as least if you're seeking it in a Casper Andreas (A Four Letter World, The Big Gay Musical) film.

Chock full of relatable, well-drawn characters, razor-sharp dialogue and witty observations...(Mindy) Cohn's performance and those of the supporting cast are great.

Slightly uneven and often contrived, but nonetheless entertaining, funny and bold. Mindy Cohn shines in a heartfelt performance filled with panache.
