What makes the film work in spite of itself is [director] Sollett's sympathy for his characters and the teamwork between Cera and Dennings, whose winsome sultriness seems entirely unaffected.

Strange... I've seen this movie a couple of times at least, and never rated. It is a little weird, but very watchable.
