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.

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.

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.
