Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Has little of importance to say about marriage, divorce, or the dating game. And the four lead characters are thoroughly uninteresting."

"Beautifully understated work by Hal Linden and John Shea suffocated by Alda's self-indulgent, surface-dwelling fortysomething angst."
‑ Jonathan R. Perry, Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
