...possesses the feel and tone of a typical sitcom, albeit a sitcom with several distinctly R-rated quirks.

There's a lost-and-found innocence in their characters which Ms. Nicholson and Mr. Mohr express beautifully.

dwells on the realistic effects of a fairly ridiculous idea - one that is clearly better suited to farce

The great cast should work together again on a project that aspires to be more than just pleasent. Not a bad movie, just a little too obvious.

The snappy one-liners, stereotypical characters, and labored narrative contrivances are all here in this episodic romantic comedy -- all that's missing are commercial breaks.

... sharp, sometimes nasty and truly funny ...

It's a credit to that talent that this film, with it's completely implausible plot, never loses the audience, delving cleverly into male and female nature for some good belly laughs and, dare I say it, some thought-provoking insights as well.

Premise sounds implausible, but Nicholson's thorough rendering of Alice as a willowy, intelligent and more than a bit self-deluded naif puts it over.

A genial, harmless, uneventful little film that will have you smiling while you're also thinking about what to get for dinner after it ends.

It's not only sexy, clever and well-acted by a fine cast of mostly TV actors, but it's also a grown-up comedy about honest-to-God grown ups.

A premise that is equal parts silly and cynical is stretched over 90 uncomfortable minutes, hitting just about every relationship cliché imaginable with incongruous spurts of graphic sex talk spiking the mostly ho-hum dialogue.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

It lacks the wit and depth to make it anything more than a mediocre tale of Hollywood malcontents.

This whiny, unpleasant comedy of infidelity makes a good case for staying celibate with the phone unplugged.

A hit-and-miss sex farce that, though recognizably independent and refreshingly raunchy, could've benefited from less sitcomy slickness.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

There are so many different pairings to keep track of that the movie loses focus and becomes a juggling act.

Sharply scripted, well cast and good-looking on a budget, Seeing Other People is a sex comedy full of insights about monogamy, promiscuity and other human endeavors.

This small-scale flick manages a kind of knowing intimacy in its only slightly exaggerated characters and situations...

In the end, it's an okay comedy of manners, but it offers no insight or surprises to add to the book of love.

A crass, clumsily constructed romantic comedy.
