Wall Street Journal
I took it as a pretty piece of ephemera, and I must confess that I laughed a lot.

Fun, if you're inclined toward cynicism, contempt, nihilism and cool stuff like that.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
A spirited, screwball crime-thriller with a sly heart.
63
Boston Globe
Neither as rollicking nor as wild as one had hoped, but Tyler's tongue-in-cheek noir goddess transcends cliche and the screenplay's other shortcomings terrifically.

New Times (L.A.)
While this production from Michael Douglas is being touted as a sexy romantic comedy, it's more precise to think of it as big loud fun for when you're feelin' dumb.

Miami Herald
It might have all seemed hip and edgy 10 years ago, but today, it just feels tired.

Christian Science Monitor
All so fast and frenetic.
50
L.A. Weekly
The drawback is Tyler, who lacks the vigor and energy her part requires in order to transcend charges of misogyny.
25
Baltimore Sun
Too bad you can see this sort of thing done more amusingly every week on ABC-TV and Comedy Central.

Has its - very - occasionally funny moments, so does a car crash.
