A dreary indulgence.

Unfortunately, Heartbreak Hospital wants to convey the same kind of haughtiness in its own sketchy material but this territory has already been explored previously with better aplomb and sardonic wit.

Desperately unfunny when it tries to makes us laugh and desperately unsuspenseful when it tries to make us jump out of our seats.

An excruciating demonstration of the unsalvageability of a movie saddled with an amateurish screenplay.

The leads we are given here are simply too bland to be interesting.

The director, with his fake backdrops and stately pacing, never settles on a consistent tone.

Sluggish, tonally uneven.

You've already seen Heartbreak if you've watched the far superior Nurse Betty or Sunset Boulevard. Even the unwatchable Soapdish is more original.

Dodgy mixture of cutesy romance, dark satire and murder mystery.

The film's tone and pacing are off almost from the get-go.

Other than a mildly engaging central romance, Hospital is sickly entertainment at best and mind-destroying cinematic pollution at worst.

This derivative flick cops too much from much-better films like Tootsie, Nurse Betty and Soapdish.

It's quite diverting nonsense.

September 3, 2002
A deliberative account of a lifestyle characterized by its surface-obsession - one that typifies the delirium of post, pre, and extant stardom.
