Rolling Stone
This comedy is packed with p---- jokes, the cruder the better.

Baltimore Sun
A bawdy, brainy sex comedy geared toward smart people with a sophomoric streak.

Let your children have their childhood while you have a rare, grown-up experience at the multi-plex for a change.

San Francisco Examiner
In another universe - though it is difficult to imagine which one - Garry Shandling might be sexy.

USA Today
Nichols usually can lure A-list casts to even C-grade projects, and this is no exception.

Chicago Reader
The buildup to social criticism in what at first appears to be pointless and partly misogynist exploitation is subtly impressive.

Shandling comes off as a sleazebag -- all that's missing are the gold chains, tufted chest hair and English Leather.

Sporadically funny, often strange and almost never poignant.

Quite possibly, this could have been a hit back in 1975 or so, and almost certainly for Blake Edwards, but here and now it's just a puzzling aberration.

The combination of Shandling's button-down TV sensibility and Nichols's good taste produces a film whose tone is out of sync with the simple, ribald conceit and is only mildly amusing at best.
