      Steve D Not the least bit entertaining despite the cast. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/24 Full Review Audience Member Feeble attempt at what should’ve been a screwball farce, this AB-shot flat comedy is the result of a decent script meeting the wrong director. Walters & Mohr are good, but I really wanted the movie that Spader was acting in. #nitrosMovieChallenge Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/28/22 Full Review Audience Member Although a bit silly and quirky, I enjoyed this movie. I was doing a rundown of movies with James Spader in them, and this one was next on my list. There are some great actors in this movie, and they make the best of a mediocre script. Spader is brilliant, as usual, as are O'Hara and Murray. Sexually charged and openly salacious, the movie is a romp of fun, making light of sexual therapists and their tactics. It is comical and crude; just enough to make it appropriate only for mature audiences. Enjoy, after the kids are in bed. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Bill Murray and Catherine O'Hara are funny. The rest is abysmal. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member I didn't like this movie because the movie was weird and not really funny or interesting. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member [b]Where:[/b] DVD [b]Genres:[/b] One line review: Surprisingly mediocre. It's really surprising how average this film is considering the cast. James Spader, Jay Mohr, Lara Flynn Boyle, Catherine O'Hara and Bill Murray have all done much better. While they do the best that they can, the script and the directing is where it fails. I'm really surprised that the cast signed on for something like this. It is defintely watchable, but you can't help but be underwhelmed by how it missed the mark with the potential it had. It could have been a lot funnier.

      Scott Weinberg eFilmCritic.com By the time Bill Murray and Catherine O'Hara show up, you'll be knee-deep in your own hatred for this movie. That the pair somehow earn some laughs only makes one pissed that they weren't the stars of the film. Rated: 1.5/5 May 12, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews
