New York Times

[The film's characters] are so repellent that almost everyone outside the movie's fetid hothouse will want to flee to fresher air.

Rex Reed
New York Observer

A tepid spoof that only occasionally evokes a reluctant smile.

Prairie Miller

Devilishly cynical eavesdropper art snob fare peering into the pretentious when not cruel machinations transpiring in the world of creative merchandise commerce.

New York Post

Goes over the top now and then, but overall it's a lot of nasty fun.

Time Out New York

A travesty no matter how you look at it, this flaccid art-world farce is best approached as a landmark of dubious ensemble work.

Amber Wilkinson
Eye for Film

Less the free-form, jazzy ensemble satire on the art world it aspires to be than an over-elaborate and under-funny undertaking by high quality actors who should know better.

Sam Adams
AV Club

The cast of superficial backstabbers, casual philanderers, and gibberish-spouting phonies has no original characters, but at least a few of the actors attack their roles with a zest that offsets their two-dimensionality.

Aaron Hillis
Village Voice

Director Duncan Ward tries way too hard to nail a way too easy target in his sub-Altman ensemble spoof of the overpriced, overhyped, overly pretentious modern-art scene.

Marcy Dermansky

The film cannot sustain the giddy, fast pace that sets it off.

Average. It started out very bad - over the top hammy acting, very unconvincing and just all round bad. Thankfully it does pick up a little, and it has a good… More

Not a good movie, it kinda has all actors that can't act in a single movie. Story was kinda sucky and non interesting. A comedy of manners set against… More
