Don't let the DVD slick's happy smiling faces fool you; this is no flimsy chick flick, but a hard headed, big hearted expose of contemporary life

Tackles some heavy domestic issues for a sitcom film and does so incisively and intelligently.

A mundane melodrama that drags us along to window shop for some cheap, knock-off dysfunction. . . the women are about as interesting as stale donuts and the lying, cheating men are like the deep fryer's leftover lard drippings.

Pic would play much better as an ironic Altmanesque comedy, since its moments of pure drama are the weakest. Still, this is a largely entertaining feature debut.

Open-ended, inconclusive, heartfelt, unsentimental and curious, it's a movie that respects something too few popular entertainments do these days: our right to stumble our way from one day to the next.

A smart, well-modulated drama from first-time Quebec director Louise Archambault that packs a powerful after-effect.

...a delicate dramedy that engages difficult themes in a way that seems neither forced nor arch.

Steering well clear of soap opera, the film offers a slice of life that women will surely recognize and men would no doubt benefit from seeing.
