We have poignancy jostling against farce, thoughtful dialogue elbowed aside by one-liners, and a visual style that incorporates rotoscope animation for no apparent reason except, maybe, that it looks neat.

Just a Kiss wants desperately to come off as a fanciful film about the typical problems of average people. But it is set in a world that is very, very far from the one most of us inhabit.

Clumsily written and numbly performed comedy of yammers.

When the film isn't uncomfortably contrived it's just downright offensive.

A series of escapades demonstrating the adage that what is good for the goose is also good for the gander, some of which occasionally amuses but none of which amounts to much of a story.

Aggressively unfunny, with jokes about suicide attempts and fatal airplane crashes.

October 4, 2002
None of these characters resembles anyone you've ever met in real life, unless you happen to know annoyingly self-involved people who speak in glib sentences that could have only come from the pen of a screenwriter.

It's coherent, well shot, and tartly acted, but it wears you down like a dinner guest showing off his doctorate.

Stevens has a keen sense of the absurd, but the whole thing is too forced.

What elevates the movie above the run-of-the-mill singles blender is its surreal sense of humor and technological finish.

It's a film that resorts to playing glib games with structure to disguise the fact that it can't manage to put together a manageable or fulfilling plot.

The accomplished ensemble meshes nicely, but the actors all look pale and exhausted, an effect that may be a byproduct of the film's photography, which is terrible.

Stevens' vibrant creative instincts are the difference between this and countless other flicks about guys and dolls.
September 24, 2002
A convoluted writing exercise gone horribly wrong.
