Metacritic Score

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    An intimate, small-scale movie in the nicest sense.

  • 70

    Variety

    Boasts engaging characters, inventive situations and a series of satisfying punchlines that will send viewers out with a smile.

  • 20

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    Almost creates a sense of dread as you sit watching its raft of aimless, self-absorbed neurotics clang into one another.
