  • Despite her script's omissions - we learn little about where these affluent people come from, their occupations or how they know one another - Ms. DuVall juggles the emotional dynamics with fluid editing and light comic touches.

  • The script wobbles between heavy-handed and touching, but the result is a pleasantly nostalgic throwback that's saved from its copy-cat tendencies by charismatic actors.

  • If DuVall's purpose was to provide a snapshot of her generation, she should have sharpened her focus.

  • As an unfussy, dryly amusing and sincere look at men and women pondering emotional pivots in their lives, it's plenty likable.

  • Wanders from scene to scene until arriving at some pretty implausible conflict resolution.

  • It's more engrossing to just hang out with the characters in all their damaged glory, before the plot marches through the room with its clunkiest boots on.
