Shelley Long wanders through a script she can't carry by herself while heading a cast handled with less than a Midas touch by director Frank Perry, who seems to think he's staging a high school play.

Chicago Sun-Times

There are the makings of a great comedy here, but you will not find more than scattered hints of it.

Time Out

Merely the excuse for a parade of expensive clothes and opulent locations, with Shelley Long milking her role for any drop of pathos, this is good for a giggle at best.

Washington Post

All of this is presented with a broad-stroked, sitcom raucousness that's pretty tough to stomach.

There are worse films, but they don't have Gabriel Byrne in them

Vincent Canby
New York Times

A high-concept comedy with a terminally low laugh content.

As predictable as the sun rising.

For the first eighty minutes or so the story seems aimless but amiable, then suddenly things do start to happen, but nothing very good.

A really good dark comedy with a good cast, it's very funny, if you like movies where dead people come back with funny results, you'll like this… More

A funny movie about life, love, and friendship. Quirky, at first but one cannot help but fall in love with it.
