Desperately seeking Mamet.

Rabe has streamlined the dialogue, sacrificing a lot of funny throwaway lines without lessening the script's burden on our patience.

What may have worked on Broadway comes across on screen as pretentious and dull. ...neither funny nor revealing, just stuffy and longwinded.

This black alleged comedy wouldn't be funny at all if it weren't for Kevin Spacey's droll wit and silly bleach do. Sean Penn's self-indulgent performance and the unfocused script make sitting through Hurlyburly a chore.

The trailer defines the term as 'tumultuous commotion, uproar,' and it could not more aptly describe this high-strung but virtually plotless film.

When the madness is all taking place in one room, as it does in the play, intensity is generated. When it's spread out across a variety of locations, the power of 'Hurlyburly' is quickly diluted...

Talky film; but brilliant. Sean Penn is at his best.

This glib talk-fest is based on David Rabe's 1984 misanthropic play about friends caught in the web of Hollywood hype.
