Stillman's sheltered, often pompous young men and women are all talk and very little action, but that's the point.
Watch only if you're drawn to the prospect of spending a half-hour watching five people go to a party and then get kicked out of it.
As with [Whitman's] first trio of films, the comedy of The Cosmopolitans comes from the obliviousness of its main characters to the humor and the privilege of their situation.
It's like being inside a Woody Allen movie without Allen's character to point out what self-absorbed schmucks these people are.
The Cosmopolitans is for a very specific kind of viewer, one that prefers inconsequential rhetoric to focused, structured storytelling.
