Brian Gibson Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Alberta) Feeble farce about sordid blood-ties and odd-couple sex. The dialogue's neither sly nor wry. Nearly every brushstroke at humour splatters into cartoonishness. There's no real darkness to the comedy, just some dingy, superficial trappings of darkness. Dec 1, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member Leffalla oli kyllä hyvät hetkensä, mutta loppua kohden elokuvan tarina muuttuikin sekavammaksi ja epäuskottavammaksi... Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Very nice comedy about "it's complicated" type of relationships. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member OK, ish. Had the makings of a good farce, but the situations seemed too contrived and unnatural. Also, the director tried to be too wacky. A more natural, yet funny, movie would have worked well. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Ã"timo filme... A guerra entre o casal extrapola qualquer previsão de atà (C) onde eles podem chegar Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member This is probably as good as a farcical sex comedy can get, in other words not very good, but still not completely pointless or dumb. In this Mika Kaurismäki offering a big cast of characters all gravitate towards a divorcing couple, and hilarity ensues as one fateful night filled with improbable coincidences unravels a web of secrets. The cast makes the best of what theyâ(TM)ve got, and some truly wonderful performances- both comical and dramatic- keep this boat from sinking. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Tälle sai ainakin nauraa :). Mutta loppu ei säväyttänyt. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews
