Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A sometimes smart social commentary on Los Angeles characters who seek spiritual salvation when they can't buy every object they want."
‑ Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune
"I spent the entire movie alternating between checking my watch to see how much was left and wishing that one of them would realize how worthless they were."

‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Presents a scathing critique of the emptiness in the lives of a couple addicted to materialism."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
