Those looking for a light and decidedly untraditional comedy will find some smart and witty exchanges within; those who consider Adam Sandler an underrated genius may be bored stiff.

Henry Jaglom's lighthearted satire of Hollywood wheeler-dealers goes as far as the director is willing to bite...
July 26, 2002
This is impressively carried off by a fine cast, particularly the luminous Aimee and Greta Scacchi whose career has intriguing parallels with those of the character she plays.
July 26, 2002
Jaglom ... put[s] the audience in the privileged position of eavesdropping on his characters
July 20, 2002
In the end, we don't see enough of Cannes and maybe too much of Kaz. But you have to accept or reject Jaglom as you might a walk on the Croisette, taking the bitter with the sweet.
July 12, 2002
A picture as charmingly insubstantial as the world it invokes.

The seaside splendor and shallow, beautiful people are nice to look at while you wait for the story to get going.
May 30, 2002
The cast is so low-wattage that none of the characters comes off as big ... and the setting remains indistinct.
April 25, 2002
Jaglom's latest is his most mature work to date, one with fresh insights into the people who decide what we experience at our cineplexes.
April 25, 2002
At its best ... Festival in Cannes bubbles with the excitement of the festival in Cannes.
April 19, 2002
A witty, trenchant, wildly unsentimental but flawed look at the ins and outs of modern moviemaking.
April 19, 2002
May be Jaglom at his most self-serving and self-righteous.
April 19, 2002
Jaglom offers the none-too-original premise that everyone involved with moviemaking is a con artist and a liar.
April 14, 2002
The kind of sweet-and-sour insider movie that film buffs will eat up like so much gelati.
April 12, 2002
The actors are simply too good, and the story too intriguing, for technical flaws to get in the way.
April 12, 2002
One of [Jaglom's] better efforts -- a wry and sometime bitter movie about love.
