Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    Fishburne excels in his triple-threat roles as actor, director and adapter of his own play, and his cast glows under his direction.

  • 50

    Variety Robert Koehler

    A film that ultimately feels stagebound and excessively talky, but which showcases an exceptional performance.

  • 40

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    (Fishburne's) performance here, witty and profane, vulnerable and strutting, nearly holds the movie together.
