3 stars out of 4 -- "The fakeouts are fun; Greg Kinnear, in the regular-guy role, is a perfect foil....Hope Davis is hilarious..."
"Pierce Brosnan gives his best performance yet....It's fast, funny, and intoxicating....It's an almost obscenely entertaining look at two men on the verge of a nervous breakdown."
Movieline's Hollywood Life
3 stars out of 5 -- "Writer-director Richard Shepard gives Brosnan his meatiest role ever, and he digs in with relish."
"[T]he cinematography is consistently hipster handsome, and the script is bracing in its lewdness..." -- Grade: B
"The film's main asset is an astoundingly loose and energised performance by Brosnan....There's an undeniable charge to watching someone obviously having so much fun."
Sight and Sound
3 stars out of 5 -- "There's some great, dark-hearted farce in the first hour....Shepard shoots with the freewheeling, laid-back charm of Soderbergh circa OCEAN'S 11..."
3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]ts best moments -- basically all scenes between Brosnan and Greg Kinnear -- are achingly enjoyable."
