May 23, 2008
Director Susan Seidelman guides her cast with a light, enthusiastic touch, never making more out of her frothy material than need be.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
May 23, 2008
All of this is cause for consistent smiling and a few outright laughs, without ever building to complete comedy.
May 23, 2008
The film acquires a pleasant, syncopated rhythm as it bounces from one unlikely event to another.
June 20, 2006
Featuring the first (and only decent) screen performance by Madona, this charming comedy imposes the old fracical gimmick of amnesia on a hip and stylish East Village milieu.

Even if the plotting (a mistaken identity farce involving that old chestnut, amnesia brought on by a bump to the head) is square as a square peg. Madonna has never found a better fit than the role of Susan.

Offbeat Susan Seidelman comedy features funny Madonna and Arquette.

It has its moments, and many of them involve the different kinds of special appeal that Arquette and Madonna are able to generate.

Still Madonna's only worthwhile film performance.
| Original Score: 3/5

Works despite Madonna and not really because of her.
| Original Score: 3/5
January 1, 2000
A fine slice of '80s nostalgia -- even for people who weren't there first time around.

This is a little slice of the decade of skinny ties and, well, Madonna, that holds up extremely well.
