An hour-and-a-half mopefest so complete that by the end of it, you want to give Hutton's character a smack in the face and tell him to stop whining, already.

Multiple Sarcasms is Woody Allen lite -- there's a lot of introspective fumbling around and intellectual foreplay. But in the end, instead of a satisfying climax, it feels like someone is faking it.

The simplistic philosophy and cast of characters out of Hollywood's bag of cliches are bad enough, but do we have to be confronted with women's female problems, too?

A fine cast cannot save this rumination on male menopause and apology, so inert, so bad, so lifeless, that the mere description repells. Who greenlighted this?… More
