To the director's credit, the actors all seem responsive to his touch, giving performances that are lively and flavorsome, if not deep or unlike anything each of them has done before.

Herzfeld has a tolerable eye for filling a 'Scope frame but a tin ear when it comes to creating dialogue; these are all characters we've met before, and most even seem bored with themselves.

Smoothly constructed, for such a busy piece of work, and Hatcher's ascent to stardom continues.
May 20, 2003
A sleek, amusingly nasty screen debut by a film maker whose television credits include an Amy Fisher docudrama.

Funny, pathetic, sad, absurdist -- writer-director John Herzfeld plays it any number of ways, and makes them all work.

There are too many characters, but some are a lot of fun. The tone shifts, from graphic murder to wig-flipping farce, are too extreme, but much of it works.

This produces some rather nasty-funny surprises.

The plot underlies even the most inexplicable scenes and eventually links even the most widely separated characters, but what makes the movie fun is the dialogue and the behavior.

It's pure entertainment -- nothing too serious, nothing too deep -- with an artistic sensibility.
