by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times]

“..the number, which seems like an outtake from another movie, is a playful diversion in a series of skits..”

by Alison Willmore [Village Voice]
2 of 4

“..awkwardly hybridizing somber politicized drama with regional humor..”
by Nick Schager [Slant Magazine]

by Mark Jenkins [NPR]
