Pipe Dream does have its charms. The leads are natural and lovely, the pace is serene, the humor wry and sprightly.

What bubbles up out of John C. Walsh's Pipe Dream is the distinct and very welcome sense of watching intelligent people making a movie they might actually want to watch.

The quirky and recessive charms of co-stars Martin Donovan and Mary-Louise Parker help overcome the problematic script.

The smug, oily demeanor that Donovan adopts throughout the stupidly named Pipe Dream is just repulsive.

This mild-mannered farce, directed by one of its writers, John C. Walsh, is corny in a way that bespeaks an expiration date passed a long time ago.
| Original Score: 2/5
