The script by Martin Donovan and David Koepp never lacks for cleverness, but it's ultimately more frantic than funny.

At the film's peak, Zemeckis, the cast, and the special-effects team achieve a deluxe, macabre slapstick.

Highly amusing, but there's nothing to the feature beyond cheap thrills and a few laughs.

In this darker than dark comedy, the actors (Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn) are used as props, part of Bob Zemeckis' nasty, effects-driven satire of our obsession with youth and physical looks.
