This is the sound of a filmmaker wrestling (transparently) with ideas, talking at but not quite down to his audience.

[An] earnest, often moving but not totally successful film.
March 15, 2008
Well written and acted ensemble film. Deserved to do so much better at the box office.

Very much an ensemble-driven zeitgeist film like Kasdan's previous Big Chill, this serio comedy about urban angst in contemporary LA may be a bit pretentious in its symbolic aspirations, but it proved prophetic in some of its ideas.

If this disaster-packed parable often smacks of melodramatic contrivance, it does at least benefit from solid performances and direction, and a leavening line in sardonic humour.

Mack: 'Why is it that when someone's successful in one field, they think they know about everything?' Gee Mack, I dunno. Ask Larry Kasdan.

For long stretches of this offbeat and innovative film, the viewer truly has no idea what will happen next and many reasons to care.

Kasdan semi-revisits "Big Chill" territory in this well-acted dramatic ensemble.

February 26, 2002
The search for meaning is vividly conveyed in this excellent film that speaks directly to the heart and soul.
January 1, 2000
It maps these dark, desperate, fearful times with comic and terrifying veracity, and holds out a glimmer of hope for the soul-searching survivors of the '90s.
January 1, 2000
Even when he wasn't trying, Kasdan's camera found tragedy, as with the opening footage of Magic Johnson, filmed before anybody knew he had the AIDS virus. The filmmaker and his team have truly caught society on the verge.
January 1, 2000
Kasdan paints a rather bleak picture of the direction the world seems to be taking. But he also suggests the hope for the future lies within each of us, and the little examples in his film illustrate the point very well.
