Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The fact is that although I admired specific things about the film, I never laughed very much and only felt slight, distant tremors of the joy that, I assume, rocked everyone connected with the movie during its production."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"The most accessible, and endearing example of his very exceptional art."
‑ Michael Scheinfeld, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Likable Cassavettes' improv fest with appealing leads"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"The movie is sort of a fairy tale, Cassavetes says; it's dedicated to all the people who didn't marry the person they should have. It is a movie on the side of love, and it is one of the finest movies of the year."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A Cassavetes must-have, must-see"
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Zany character portrayal of two lonely thirtysomething misfits who are opposites but nevertheless find romance together despite many obstacles in their path."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Possibly Cassavetes' best -- this one actually has a plot!"
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
