Gandolfini comes in from left field and provides a character with dimensions and surprises, bringing out the best in Roberts.
March 2, 2001
Tries to pass off a lot of aimless zigzagging as quirkiness.
March 2, 2001
To its many producers, teaming Julia Roberts and Brad Pitt for the first time was obviously of far greater importance than finding a good story and a strong director.

It wants ever so desperately to be successfully hip and offbeat, but it can't manage to make it happen.
March 1, 2001
A passably diverting entry in the Tarantino genre of splatter and yuks and soulfully bumbling hit men.

J.H. Wyman's clever script takes chances and includes some truly satisfying payoffs.
March 1, 2001
A series of scenes and set-pieces that have entertaining stuff going for them, but that doesn't hang together in any sort of compelling way.

A rollicking romantic comedy with an alarmingly high body count.
March 1, 2001
A flaky, funny shaggy-dog story.

March 1, 2001
A mixed bag -- the comedy is generally effective, and some of the drama works, but the adventure and romance elements are dead on arrival.
March 1, 2001
Gandolfini not only anchors this lightweight material in genuine emotion but also adds a warming layer of subtle comedy that jibes nicely with the more frenetic kind played by the movie's two leads.
March 1, 2001
Every now and then, when this picaresque caper loses its way, you can imagine Pitt and Roberts, each posed prettily on a lily pad, ribbitting BRAD. JULIA. BRAD. JULIA.
March 1, 2001
A terrific ensemble comedy-adventure about guns, messy relationships and dusty El Caminos.
