Consensus: Boring and predictable script; not funny.

Emanuel Levy

Despite a star cast (Nick Nolte, Emily Watson), Rudolph's comedy-mystery is a minor, trivial film that tries to be whimsical but lacks humor or fresh angle on the Hollywood's cherished genres of noir and screwball.

New York Times

Despite its occasional flashes of brilliance (every Rudolph film has them), this unsavory stew never comes to a boil.

Richard T. Jameson
Mr. Showbiz

What Trixie has to offer is not so much deconstruction as slapdash.

Jeffrey Westhoff
Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

Worthwhile only for Emily Watson's strange but amiable performance.

J. Hoberman
Village Voice

The movie is as overlong and undermotivated as it is absentmindedly incoherent.

Elizabeth Weitzman

The script is ridiculous and the direction inept.
