Critics reviews

It’s a film that makes you take it seriously, even as you’re sniggering to yourself over its wry cuts and quippy one-liners. The performances are superb; it’s Michael Patrick Jann’s only feature-length film (he was a cast member on MTV’s The State and directed the majority of its sketches—he now directs television), but he proves himself adept as a director of actors in larger-scale projects.
