Yhe mix of earthy symbolism, offbeat eroticism, the picaresque and the rough-and-tumble social, rather unpolitical satire now seems poured from a bottle that has been left uncapped overnight.

Time Out

A plot that goes AWOL in the interests of true love, and Roberts, as the kid from Coke, who is well on his way to becoming the world's worst actor.

A zany look at the competitive ethos of an aggressive corporation.

A complete mess, but so benign it's rather hard to take offence.

New York Times

The film's cutting edge is never very keen.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Christopher Null
March 7, 2001
The first half is far better than the resolution, which eventually meanders off to the point of silliness.

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times

An oddball comedy that is particularly well-timed to coincide with the current Coke marketing circus.
