  • It's lively talk, with attractive performances, but you can't help wondering when the thriller end of the bargain is meant to kick in.

  • Bang is weirdly listless, and the early spark of passion between him and Debicki gets lost in a muddle of pretentious chatter that lacks the bite to sell itself as consciously self-satirising

    The title mercifully turns out to be a joke of sorts and I appreciate any movie that makes the correct observation that the very pretentious are often very lazy.
