The young actresses Graham and Wagner here create two characters who feel whole, distinct and weighty.

A lively, if slender, perpetuation of the battle between the sexes on a modern battleground.

There's a lot of vapid discussions about sexuality and fidelity that sound like a late-night drunken dorm room conversation.

Washington Post

An edgy, gabby, salaciously subversive sex farce.

Chicago Reader

Writer-director James Toback must believe his audience is hopelessly prudish if he thinks this pedantic story, which takes place over several hours in a Manhattan loft, is provocative.

DVD Review

As a serio-comedy, it only half succeeds. The laughs are well earned, but the attempts at serious romantic analysis fall short of poignancy.

Pretty much a play or three way conversation captured on film. Downey Jr. is amazing as always. Without him the film may have still been good, but the… More
