Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The running gag is that [this film about advertising] takes its own high-concept formula of a yuppie's just desserts and whips it up with more tang than any consumer could want."
‑ Rob Nelson, City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul
"The difference between Withnail and I and this film is that here, Robinson is trying to deliver a message instead of focusing on his characters. Mistake."
‑ Carlo Cavagna,
"acerbic but overstated satire"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"Grant alone makes this eminently worth renting."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"One of the strangest, most outrageous, most bitter, irreverent and bitingly funny satires the movies ever offered."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"A dark comedy from Great Britain about the advertising world."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Thanks to Grant's bravura performance, the film is wickedly enjoyable."
‑ Michael Dequina,
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina
