Slate
A grave screwball comedy. Its gags aren't just hilarious -- they have a weighty, plaintive soul.
90
One of the most subtle and inspired comedies you'll see this year.
58
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
A mildly amusing but forgettable and way-too-scatological black farce.
50
Christian Science Monitor
The story isn't nearly as funny or suspenseful as it would like to be, although the solid cast gives it occasional dashes of pizazz.
50
Variety
A textbook case in which the parts are greater than the whole.

The big trouble here is that there seem to be pieces of three different films rubbing up against each other without ever fitting together.

Neeson might as well have phoned this one in.

What use is journeyman acting, quality set design and a kicky, eclectic score in a movie that's so ineptly scripted?
25
New York Daily News
Blakeney's script contains more hackneyed dialogue and misfired jokes per minute than would seem possible, and the result embarrasses every actor in it.

TNT RoughCut
We're just over a month into 2000 and already there's a candidate for the year's worst picture.
