Critics reviews

Lubezki and Stiller’s work together is startling in its beauty. The photography emphasizes the peach-hued lamplight in this Houston apartment or the late evening sun cascading through its windows . . . The camera keeps pace with the couple [Stiller and Ryder] as they step from an elevator across a lobby then out through a revolving door. Few character-focused comedies (and honestly, few Ben Stiller movies) look this lovely.
