Prejudicado por um roteiro previsível e que jamais opta por um gênero claro, o filme traz uma ótima atuação de Steve Martin, que deveria fazer mais filmes "sérios".

To say this is black comedy is to understate the case, but the fun parts really are a hoot.

In a world filled with technically beautiful dogs, every once in awhile it's nice to see a film that bets the bank on great storytelling and a whole lot of soul.

An impressive directorial debut, but you wish Atkins had not made his movie's gradual descent seem as inevitable as Frank's.

A screwball film noir with a lot of medium laughs and a few great big ones.
