Set during one afternoon at a Los Angeles, this edgy ensemble sex comedy was the feature debut of director Kurt Voelker. Starring William Baldwin, Ricki Lake, and Cheri Oteri, Park intertwines the lives of several unsuspecting people, including a suicidal woman, a philandering lawyer, his snooping wife, a pair of dog groomers, and a van of aspiring nudists.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There are plenty of laughs in the outrageous predicaments and the actors are obviously having a ball."
‑ Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"It's all harmlessly naughty at the outset, but when it comes to juggling all those characters and their intersecting scenarios, Voelker lacks the dexterity of, say, Robert Altman."
‑ Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"There's very little cohesion among the separate storylines and aside from some nice performances, it all seems rather pointless."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"It's a hilarious, crowd-pleasing film about everything from honesty to sex to freedom that's definitely smart without being too overbearing."
‑ Michael Ferraro, Film Threat
"None of the characters seems particularly believable, except Lake's; she brings some feeling to a thin role. And the campy, "outrageous" comedy is pretty thin, too."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"A flotilla of L.A. residents gathers in an unlandscaped recreation area in Baldwin Hills to canoodle, attempt suicide, plot revenge and dig into one another's psyches in writer-director Kurt Voelker's high-spirited if slight comedy, Park."
‑ Kevin Crust, Los Angeles Times
"Man, have we gone downhill since Short Cuts."
‑ Rob Humanick, Slant Magazine
"Suicide, infidelity, spousal abuse and arrested development are the building blocks of Park a wearisome comedy."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"[Makes] the most of thrifty means to highly entertaining effect."
‑ F.X. Feeney, L.A. Weekly
"If Park aspired to any real insights or to any ambition beyond the routine, its hysterics would be worth sitting through."
‑ Jay Antani, Boxoffice Magazine
