Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
May 15, 2003
Sitcom-ish but lively and amusing ensemble comedy that treats its intelligent, emotionally conflicted characters with respect...
| Original Score: 3/4

Don't let the title fool you into dismissing this as another Steven Seagal action snooze.

Middleton ... has assembled a clique of familiar, broadly drawn characters, but her film manages to rise above sitcom status, thanks to their sassy repartee.

A light, engaging, well-carpentered film, with a quick wit and a sense of character just deep enough to lend some weight to the laugh lines.
| Original Score: 4/5

The movie's low budget shows, but the competent (many of them also sitcom veterans) cast keeps things moving smoothly.

The acting can be subtle (Payne) or broad (Alexander), laid-back (Morgan) or laid on thick (De Sousa). Yet these performance variations matter less than the honesty of the situations.
