      Philip Wuntch Dallas Morning News The attempt is courageous, even if the result is wildly uneven. Rated: C+ Sep 5, 2002 Full Review Sheri Linden Boxoffice Magazine For those who accept the offbeat premise, the film ultimately delivers a satisfying dramatic exploration of the ways we create ourselves. Rated: 3.5/5 Jul 14, 2002 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times What makes the movie work is that the premise, which sounds like a comedy, is treated with the seriousness of life and death. Rated: 3/4 Jul 13, 2002 Full Review Cole Smithey Rated: 2/5 Dec 1, 2007 Full Review Film Threat Rated: 0.5/5 Dec 6, 2005 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Jul 23, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      Will H I wanted to like this movie. If has a few moments and even a great idea for a plot. Sadly, it just doesn't pull through. I hated the beginning of the film so that's why it left a bad taste in my mouth. Not to give away anything, but has anyone ever played a sport, skipped warm-ups, missed most of the game, with no excuse, yet the coach still puts you in to play? Um, no. Case Closed. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 04/28/24 Full Review Audience Member This is not The Sopranos, but a lovely contemporary comedy. SMG acted so good. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review steve d It is really, really, really.... bad. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Funny scenes with LSD from someone who actually knows what it is like. But a bit too much bloody talking, Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Much like the plot, its as if everyone responsible for this movie was on an LSD trip Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Drug induced sexual fun is the name of the game with strange images and a waste of your time, Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Read all reviews
