Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"There are the makings of a great comedy here, but you will not find more than scattered hints of it."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"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."
‑ , Time Out
"All of this is presented with a broad-stroked, sitcom raucousness that's pretty tough to stomach."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"There are worse films, but they don't have Gabriel Byrne in them"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"A high-concept comedy with a terminally low laugh content."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"As predictable as the sun rising."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"For the first eighty minutes or so the story seems aimless but amiable, then suddenly things do start to happen, but nothing very good."
‑ Mark R. Leeper, rec.arts.movies.reviews
