REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..though the enjoyable prickliness of the film's early scenes soon dissolves into cozy solutions, a sturdy supporting cast - even Ron Leibman's scenery-chewing turn as Laura's blowhard father is more amusing than annoying - balances the scales..”
by Jeannette Catsoulis [NY Times]
3.5 of 4

“..this one in the same category of edgy Long Island comedies as the equally smart 2008 Alec Baldwin film "Lymelife"..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
Review rate : B-

“..the film can be so understated in tone and plot that it's hard to tell if it's actually saying anything..”
by Keith Staskiewicz [Entertainment Weekly]
“..if the film takes too long to reach its rather soft denouement, Fischer makes Laura's awakening convincing..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]
1.5 of 4

“..a lackluster, weirdly paced and ultimately dull story of a woman in crisis - played for laughs, except there aren't any..”
by Moira Macdonald [Seattle Times]
