Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Kudrow's Michele is a deadpan delight."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"For all its bright moments, 91 minutes turns out to be more than this joke can sustain."
‑ John Hartl,
"Kudrow and Sorvino are fun to watch, Garafalo is deliciously acerbic, and the whole Valley Girl reunion thing is a stroke of light-and-fluffy genius."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Hilarious comedy about the challenges of friendship and the yearning all of us have to find something to do that is fun and fulfilling."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"In a film whose lead characters try so desperately to be adored, it's disappointing that the overall effect should be one of indifference."
‑ Caroline Westbrook, Empire Magazine
"Beneath the endless silliness of the movie beats a real heart"
‑ Jack Mathews, Los Angeles Times
"Sorvino and Kudrow work easily and wickedly together."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"I just can't resist stories about misfits, even as slight and forgettable as this one."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"While the pace gets a little choppy as the film moves into fantasy scenes for longer than we'd really like, most of the film is Grade A hilarious."
‑ Mike DeWolfe, Apollo Guide
"Uneven and strains for effect"
‑ Jack Garner, Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
"Isn't so much a movie as an overly long pilot episode of some new "Must See TV'' sitcom."
‑ Sean Means,
"Robin Schiff's screenplay is filled with memorable zings ("You're just as cute as me," Michele assures Romy. "In some cultures, maybe even cuter."), Sorvino and Kudrow are an irresistible team, and Janeane Garofalo shows up to steal scenes with aplomb."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"It's not stupid. It's adorable. There's a difference."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Unwanted flashbacks"
‑ John Paul Powell, Jam! Movies
"What laughs there are in the movie -- and there are a lot of them -- are mitigated by the rampant negativity."
‑ Joe Baltake, Sacramento Bee
