      Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times [It has] a story that feels like a 1930s screwball comedy, but is set in the present day and, even more incredibly, doesn't seem to know it's a comedy. It plays its contrived story perfectly straight, as if events like this could happen. Rated: 1/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Aug 19, 2005 Full Review Philip Martin Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Rated: 2/5 Dec 31, 2004 Full Review Susan Tavernetti Palo Alto Weekly Rated: 1.5/4 May 20, 2003 Full Review Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat Spirituality & Practice Shows how even morally bankrupt individuals can suddenly find themselves to be miracle workers.
