Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's no special logic at work. The performances are good, but the film has been assembled without an overriding sense of humor and style."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Robert Altman adapted Christopher Durang's play for this peculiar comedy that can't ever seem to find its rhythm."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"He needs more characters to play with than Durang's analyst's couches and restaurant trysts can provide, and simply hasn't the body count to fill in the vacant frames."
‑ Pat Graham, Chicago Reader
"It's a movie in which every scene must have seemed like a lot of fun at the time, but, when they're edited together, there's no pattern to the movie, nothing to build toward, no reason for us to care. It's all behavior."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
