Movie Reviews

Los Angeles Times - 9/10 by Kenneth Turan This buoyant, giddy comedy of catastrophe is the funniest film of the year so far, possibly the most amusing mainstream live-action comedy since "There's Something About Mary."
Variety - 9/10 by Todd McCarthy A flat-out hilarious mainstream comedy.
Bullz-Eye.com - 9/10 by Jamey Codding A definite must-see that's perfect for a guys' night out or a relaxing date.
Christian Science Monitor - 9/10 by David Sterritt Many belly laughs.
Big Picture Big Sound - 8/10 by Joe Lozito Director Jay Roach of the Austin Powers films keeps the pace brisk, and the script by Jim Herzfeld and John Hamburg ably piles the pratfalls ludicrously high.
New York Post - 8/10 by Jonathan Foreman Part sitcom, part comedy of manners - but it lacks the courage to deal honestly with class and ethnicity.
San Francisco Chronicle - 8/10 by Bob Graham It's a kind of "sex, lies and videotape'' in suburbia.
Washington Post - 8/10 by Desson Thomson Roach knows to play to the movie's twin strengths: Stiller and De Niro. Throw these guys together, turn up the intensity.
Rolling Stone - 8/10 by Peter Travers A hilarious hodgepodge, in which De Niro gives his best comic performance to date.
New York Daily News - 8/10 by Jami Bernard What makes it work so well is superb chemistry and a light touch. The spray-painted cat scene doesn't hurt, either.
Salon.com - 8/10 by Stephanie Zacharek De Niro's performance works because it isn't exactly likable -- he's totally at ease with his own jokes, but he's not out to make us feel relaxed.
Slate - 8/10 by David Edelstein Has a soft windup, but along the way are some of the best-constructed slapstick sequences since "There's Something About Mary."
