Chicago Reader
A must-see.

San Francisco Examiner
There's enough sexual manic depression to justify house calls from Dr. Laura.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Kahn manages to turn his feast of flesh, navel-gazing talk and self-destructive jealousy into a thoughtful reflection on the subject.
70
Catches you with a creepy sucker punch.
63
New York Post
Talky, overlong and, ultimately, just as predictable and repetitive as the maddening relationship it depicts.
63
New York Daily News
Only mildly interesting.
60
Overly schematic, not always believable in its crude sexual mechanics and ultimately unsensual. But it lays out the laws of erotic attraction with a brutal directness that is downright scary.
50
Christian Science Monitor
Energetic acting and directing make it a less exasperating experience than it might have been.
50
It's a movie about an idiot in the grip of something common place. He starts off as a garden-variety idiot and progresses to a big idiot.
40
L.A. Weekly
As exasperating as it is insightful. The film ultimately falters, though, because it's so resolutely old-fashioned.
