Altman loves to explode movie genres, and his script, co-written with Frank Barhydt, fuses the classic '30s screwball comedy and crime film.

It could never for an instant be mistaken for anything but a Robert Altman film, and that counts for a lot.

Jennifer Jason Leigh and Miranda Richardson are synergetic perfection as social opposites thrown together for 24 hours in a 1934 hot town.

A sadly ordinary motion picture, and, in less sure hands, it might have been something of an unfortunate mess. Even with Altman at the helm, however, it manages to be singularly unremarkable.

Let's just say that if you find it arbitrary and more an expression of Altman's feelings about class than the outcome of his story, then we are in agreement.

Would someone throw a net over Jennifer Jason Leigh? She's at it again.

[It] has its own brawling vitality.

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.
