Critics reviews

Since his first three features, Brooks’s energy and invention have diminished, perhaps because he keeps trying to score commercially… Still, I like all of Brooks’s features, which are brilliantly conceptualized and deftly executed. This one’s no exception, and some of the laughs are genuinely cathartic.
