May 2, 2001
Oblivious to its own towering obsolescence.
April 27, 2001
The actors make the most of a predictable story line, and almost without exception the jokes are funny.
April 27, 2001
Feels like a needless, thankless, charmless shout-out to the '80s rock video.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4
April 27, 2001
There isn't much to McCool's that couldn't be found in an adult magazine.
April 27, 2001
Straining for a sense that a good time was had by all.
April 27, 2001
Sourly unsexy and vulgar.
April 27, 2001
Proceeds from a premise that's as simplistic as a seventh-grade gym class joke.
April 27, 2001
It might have all seemed hip and edgy 10 years ago, but today, it just feels tired.
April 27, 2001
[The filmmakers are] more concerned with marketing strategies and with seeming hip than in making a comedy with integrity.
April 27, 2001
Moviedom needs Zwart about as much as the world needs another phallic gag about hot dogs.
April 27, 2001
What few laughs it does manage to eke out hardly seem worth all the effort.
April 27, 2001
Zwart has a real flair for farce.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 27, 2001
Fun, if you're inclined toward cynicism, contempt, nihilism and cool stuff like that.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 27, 2001
Sloppy and inconsequential, like a keg party in a parentless home.
April 27, 2001
Neither Zwart nor Seidel can really enter into the lubricious, dirty-minded spirit the movie should have.
April 27, 2001
The late Stan Seidel's script is overly talky and under-inspired.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
April 27, 2001
A self-conscious exercise in dead hipness.
April 27, 2001
Plot-heavy, but about as involving as a stick of gum.
April 27, 2001
It is so busy with its crosscut structure and its interlocking stories that it never really gives us anyone to identify with.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 27, 2001
The jokes are only funny sometimes, the stunt casting feels gratuitous after a while, and a barrage of bullets at the end is out of place.
April 27, 2001
Tyler's tongue-in-cheek noir goddess transcends cliche and the screenplay's other shortcomings terrifically.
April 27, 2001
Even when the film makes no sense, it's still an enjoyably off-beat exercise.
April 27, 2001
It's grabbing you by the lapels and screaming, 'Laugh!'

April 26, 2001
With its distinctive voice, the irreverent comedy makes the unsavory seem tasty.
April 26, 2001
An overwritten, overacted, overedited, heck even overorchestrated dark comedy.
April 26, 2001
A small, dark comedy with mischievous wit and the goofy charm.
April 26, 2001
Hinges on a haphazard intersection between several venal, infinitely and annoyingly flawed characters.
April 26, 2001
More than just dumb, the picture is embarrassingly dorky.
Full Review | Original Score: D

A case of having your cheesecake and eating it, too.

April 5, 2001
Tyler, a true beauty, gives the role a valiant try, but her range is too limited to play this amalgam of female perfection.
