Adam Resnick's script is flat, failing to provide a sense of escalating tension or much humor, and relying primarily on endless profanity for cheap laughs.

Instead of becoming involved in the convoluted plot, we stand on the outside looking in, not laughing enough to make it all worthwhile.
January 1, 2000
Scores heavily with laughs and malicious merriment.

Looks like your basic formulaic undertaking, but it's got a lovely subversive edge to it.

It's hard to squeeze laughs out of such material, though the talented actors give it their best effort.
January 1, 2000
The movie is as lifeless and unfunny as a corpse on a slab.
January 1, 2000
A movie that drips with condescension.
January 1, 2000
A satisfying comedy.

There's something refreshing about the way it invites us to splash around in its little wading pool of amorality.

Clever and diverting.

Too bad the script couldn't smart its way out of a wet paper bag of play money. Oh yeah, and it's not funny. Not once.

Will someone please rescue John Travolta's career?

While there are a few decent laughs to be had here and there, the film's a bit too listless when it should have been more hyperactive and too dull when it should have been razor-sharp.
January 1, 2000
The laughs are few in this inert, ungenerous comedy.
January 1, 2000
To say that it hasn't been a very good year for John Travolta may be the understatement of all time.
January 1, 2000
Tells too much story at not enough energy. It should have been cut back and cranked up.

There are dark comedies. There are screwball comedies. But there aren't many dark screwball comedies. And if Nora Ephron's Lucky Numbers is any indication, there's a good reason for that.
