Boston Globe
Executed on a pretty broad level, but if characterization is slighted, the ensemble is so rich, with such depth, that every few minutes another juicy turn keeps coming our way to divert us.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Scores high on nastiness, but it has as many surprisingly funny moments as offensive ones.
63
New York Post
Tasteless but sporadically uproarious black comedy.
60
Los Angeles Times
With a hilarious script and capable cast, the film puts a clever spin on the everyone-is-a-suspect plot.
50
Miami Herald
Has a made-for-TV smallness (it will probably be a big hit on cable), and it never quite vanquishes the nagging suspicion that you could be spending your time better elsewhere.
25
A funny comedy for about 90 seconds. Then Bette Midler goes off a cliff.
20
Time
There's a definite limit to the number of moron jokes we can absorb in 100 minutes, and their movie exceeds it.
10
Dallas Observer
With a sneer and a wink, Drowning Mona plunges us into a fresh deluge of idiotic Americana .
10
Newsweek
As dumb as the film is, the actors escape relatively unscathed.
10
Variety
A white-trash black comedy, a caustic working-class whodunit in which the solution to the murder mystery takes a distant back seat to countless barbs and jibes tossed in the direction of the mostly imbecilic cast of characters.
