Critics reviews

This Kurt Vonnegut adaptation is one of Demme’s slightest yet most charming works. There’s something disarmingly surreal about the contrastive appearance of its low-budget TV aesthetic with its top-billed stars, Susan Sarandon and Christopher Walken, who already had career-defining performances in their rearview… It’s an outlier in Demme’s dramatic work that crystallizes his interests and talent.
