What to know

critics consensus

Nora Ephron's attempt at dark comedy is an uneven product, both in terms of the direction and the acting. The characters are unlikable to the point where you don't care what happens to them, and Ephron condescends to the material. Read critic reviews

    A movie that's so forgettable you may need to rewind it to remember what's going on. Still, it's as harmless as Goldilock's porridge.

    Okay, I went into this movie thinking it was going to be utter crap, but since I love Roth, I decided to see it anyway. And I must say I was quite surprised. It had a nice flow to it, and a great cast that portrayed nicely eccentric characters, especially John Travolta. I'm so used to seeing him be a hardened criminal that when he's floundering around and squeeling in this I just couldn't help but laugh out loud. Lisa Kudrow was also great and played a real crazy bitch, which was nice considering the usual ditzes she plays. Roth was great as usual, and was strangely charming despite his character's immoral personality. Oh, and Pullman was great too; he was actually probably the funniest as a the laziest police officer you'll ever see. So all in all it had a few laughs and some witty parts, but it still felt like it was trying a bit too hard. I'd wait to see it on TV or rent it if you're really interested, but I'd only suggest it to Travolta or Roth fans.
