Instead of digging more deeply and drawing more complex characters and motivations, [Dolman] skims along the surface, plays to the mass market, and delivers a sitcom which will be forgotten a week after it is seen.

I'm in a deep funk after watching this offensive, unfunny comedy starring two of my favorite actresses.

...Hawn is undoubtedly bubbly and effervescent, and she pretty much carries this trifle, but her woman-child act is growing thin, even when she's apparently spoofing it.

'Ejemplo de una cinta en que no importa el talento de su reparto o lo interesante que pudo haber resultado su premisa, pues el resultado es francamente aburrido y, por momentos, deplorable.'

[Plays] in broad outline as pandering middle-age buddy-comedy.
