Ryan has an edge that is extremely becoming...This is her best work yet.

Karyo -- a big star in France but little known in this country -- has Steve Martin's knack for keeping his dignity while doing outrageous slapstick.
75
USA Today
This twisted romance possesses the soul and edgy atmosphere of an independent film but not quite the conviction.
75
ReelViews
A deliciously nasty, dark comedy.
67
One of the most inventive romantic comedies to come around in some while.
60
Empire
Ryan and Broderick, while individually first-rate, don't combine as sexily as they ought, making the inevitable outcome a little too pat in an otherwise genre-bucking affair.
50
Chicago Sun-Times
It is always a problem in a love story when the rival seems more interesting than the hero, and that's what happens here.
50
Christian Science Monitor
The story is as contrived as it is comical.
50
Just a little shy of twisting the knife that extra twist.
33
Entertainment Weekly
Commits the cardinal sin of too many modern movies: It never gives the audience a clue why any of these people were ever attracted to one another in the first place. [30 May 1997, p. 54]
