    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "Goofiness has its charms, especially when delivered by a comedienne as deft as Jennifer Westfeldt."
    Jeremy Gerard for Bloomberg

    "Rather than building a comic situation into a big payoff, it just collapses in a puddle of silliness."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "Expect to laugh frequently."
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey
