  • Critic Reviews
    "...A uniformly splendid cast of comic actors....True farce, uniformly, cheerily nasty..."
    New York Times

    "...A hilariously venal comedy....Dazzlingly fresh and modern....Though quite sophisticated, it is pitched just right to include everyone in on the joke..."

    "....Hilarious....[The directors] fill the movie with comic vigor; they skewer their victims with panache..."
    Los Angeles Times
