Some vivid moments, but overall, just so-so.

The most dense, fascinating collage of notions and meta-narrative references and formal tinkering in Soderbergh's whole career.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10

It's a doodle movie, a sketchbook. I was held by the tinkering quality of it, though.

Soderbergh's movie likely will appeal more to filmmakers than filmgoers.

a dizzyingly convoluted exploration of sex, art, identity and reality

The meta-elements never hamper the central appeal of the film, which are the rich and flawed characters who are simply searching for a connection with another human being.

...Soderbergh has essentially gone full circle and made his artiest flick yet. Trouble is, it's just not terribly interesting.

Should've been released as a lowkey DVD.

I sort of enjoyed it, but the movie plays amateurish and doesn't tell us anything new.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Somewhere under the layers of pretentiousness and in-jokes and cleverness and reflexivity and artsiness and talk, there is probably a film lurking. I didn't find it.

The whole thing comes off as a bunch of rich actors slumming it for kicks in a faux low-budget flick.

While it does beat watching paint dry, at least watching paint dry gives you a sense of something having been accomplished.

None of it makes much sense, but most of it is fun, some hilarious.
Margaret A. McGurk
Cincinnati Enquirer
October 15, 2002
The story is so unmoored and the characters so ill-defined that the overall effect is vacuous.

Little more than a Dogme 95 film with Julia Roberts looking like a baboon.

This is a meaningful film trapped inside a half-baked film.
Blake French

...feels like a featurette in a better movie's DVD.
| Original Score: 3/5

A raw, emotional tapestry that may have benefited from the no-nonsense atmosphere Soderbergh provided, but I doubt that.

Beach Reporter (Southern California)

What may have been a nice diversion from the norm in Hollywood ends up as dull trip into the lives of ordinary, self-involved Angelenos.
