Critics reviews

I don’t want to oversell [the movie]…. The script is full of holes, most of the one-liners are weak and mechanical, and the plot… is so deliberately stupid and contrived that one can probably enjoy it only by pretending it’s a routine, low-budget second feature on an old-fashioned double bill, which is obviously what Allen intended. Yet it’s possible for a picture to be not very good and still be likable — something that doesn’t happen very often for me with Allen’s pictures.
