Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You've probably been to parties like this, even if you wish you hadn't: languid all-nighters filled with vaguely recognizable music and vaguely employed artists."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"It's all terribly self-referential."
‑ Jorge Morales, Village Voice
"A wonderful debut feature from critic-turned-filmmaker Matt Zoller Seitz."
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
"There's nothing especially new or interesting about the guests, the party or the movie."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"Watching their petty dramas unfold is remarkably like being a fly on the wall at a get-together that goes on too long but yields a couple of priceless anecdotes that make the experience seem worthwhile -- at least in the retelling."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The people are mostly attractive, and the acting is credible, but the story goes absolutely nowhere"
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"By the final fade-out, there have been only two or three resolutions, positive or negative, to the erotic and emotional alliances made during the party itself; the rest is mere flirting and self-promotion."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"An intimate, intoxicating chamber piece."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
