Critics Reviews

The New York Times
Smith's knowing humor and unruffled style make a good antidote to gender chaos. Music by David Pirner contributes to the film's loose, inviting mood.

Chasing Amy
A comedy with an actual heart, only ever so slightly bettered by Clerks. Ben Affleck and Jason Lee both excel. Only complaint - is Joey Lauren Adams really THAT desirable?

Offbeat and rings true
