Despite some lovely moments ... Fast Food Fast Women operates like a sitcom.

Nothing runs very deep, or very diverting ... in this overplayed, underwritten slice of (love-)life.

Tries hard to be charming, but succeeds only occasionally.

An incoherent jumble of characters and situations.

Has a vacant, inept, why-oh-why feeling from its opening minutes and only gets worse.

Naive as Kollek's writing is, there's something winning about his sympathy with out-of-step characters.

An intimate, small-scale movie in the nicest sense and represents a wholly unanticipated advance on the part of Kollek.

Despite a script that occasionally calls for some embarrassingly awkward lines, Kollek's cast generally acquits itself well.

For all the off-key notes sounded by this story of an overworked New York waitress, a trio of her customers and a loutish cabbie, it never falls apart.

There's nothing wrong with Fast Food Fast Women that a casting director and a rewrite couldn't have fixed.

The filmmaker's enthusiasm for addressing diverse people's needs for both companionship and sexual gratification is admirable, but movies aren't just about notions.

Kollek is a fringe auteur who makes independent films the old fashioned way: no budget, static camera, a script that telegraphs its tiny, paste gem ironies.

Kollek's droll humor relieves most of the cloyingly familiar aspects of this wish-fulfillment phantasmagoria.

Almost creates a sense of dread as you sit watching its raft of aimless, self-absorbed neurotics clang into one another.

There's much pleasure to be had in watching these gifted and highly individual actors groaning over their fate as they tentatively set about love's first fumblings.

A delightfully irreverent romantic comedy.
