You haven't seen this many outrageous costumes since the Halloween parade on Cedar Springs.

It's Green who, despite his straight-man role ... steals the show, with a performance of controlled engagement with both the delights and damage of the kids' lifestyle.

Culkin and Green are equally fine in their roles, which on the surface seem to require nothing more than mincing, prancing, posing and a bit of Clockwork Orange makeup.

The film has been superbly cast down to its smallest roles, and the talent and energy of the performers give it a zing that, indeed, makes much of it one big party.

Culkin and Green, both just as fabulous and pretentious as they can be, pull it off.

Green's St. James steals the picture out from under [Culkin] (poetic justice of a sort), and the supporting cast is nothing short of amazing.

Alig is played by Macaulay Culkin, in his first movie since Richie Rich (1994), and it is a fearless performance as a person so shallow, narcissistic and amoral that eventually even his friends simply stare at him in disbelief.

A real-life horror show of beautiful people, which is visually striking and disturbing all at once.

[Culkin and Green's] assortment of vocal tics, nervous laughs and over-the-top 'nancy-ness' often are very funny and appropriately giddy.

The film is playful and never dares take itself too seriously, and neither do the characters.

Call it what you will, a morality tale, a cautionary fable, one walks away with a sense of catharsis

It's very self-aware and probably too arch. But the effortless and inventive weaving of zany surfaces with the more sobering truths below makes the film worth seeing.
