"Intermission" is a bloke-and-smoke spin on "Love, Actually." It's for women seeking a romantic comedy that doesn't reduce relationships to cutesy-poo homilies. By adding shootouts and car chases, it's slso for guys who are just not that into goo, either.

Dizzily paced and structured, the Irish import Intermission charms with a never-let-'em-see-you-sweat exuberance

The great thing about Intermission is that you barely have time to spot the gaps.

A well-acted and interesting dark comedy, but the convoluted writing becomes the big drawback.

Intermission may be more Love Actually-familiar than Robert Altman-intricate but is ultimately engaging on its own terms.

Intermission bursts with the energy of a documentary filmed on the run with a stolen camera.

It's a sign of a well-written movie when all of the individual episodes carry equal weight.

Intermission is the first movie in ages to show us what Irish native Hollywood star Farrell is capable of.

A kicky hopefulness obscures any misery. Once everyone's done screaming F-bombs in each other's faces, they reach out again... it's Love Actually for drunken a-holes.

It's an amusing film, and a likable one, but its ensemble of characters almost universally fails to engage our emotions the way it ought to.

Opts for a back-breaking, soul-aching, and occasionally violent path to the heart.

It's a little like watching Love Actually remade as a gritty crime drama -- an odd juxtaposition of styles, but one that crackles with kinetic energy.
