“..too bad the writing lurches, the acting falters and the directing fumbles for tone. Too bad the movie never generates any real steam; it may be set during the dog days, but no one ever sweats, either literally or figuratively..”
by Amy Biancolli [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..there is no character insight allowed by the bumper-car storytelling..”
by Mark Olsen [LA Times]
1 of 5

“..the movie's libido feels teleported in from other eras - maybe the 1980s, when a flirty spot wasn't a gym or an ATM..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
1 of 5

“..maybe with a different cast, a different story, a different combination of couplings, the movie could have been better..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
“..it is absolutely terrible..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
1.5 of 4

“..it fails to channel those waves shimmering off the pavement into sexual energy - a shame, given that that's the central topic..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

“..a stale noodle kugel..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
