A minor Altman work that can't bridge the gap between larger issues--inequality, American politics--and intimate narrative about two women, well played by Jennifer Jason Leigh and Miranda Richardson.

[It] has its own brawling vitality.
January 1, 2000
All of the characters act as if somebody might come along someday and make a movie about them. And Altman, who made the movie, gets his chance to sit in at last on one of those cutting sessions.
