Metascore®Generally unfavorable reviewsbased on a weighted average of allcritic review scores.

Landon's sardonic view of human nature and deft filmmaking skills - plus a raft of sharp portrayals - keep the viewer from pondering the preposterousness of certain situations and instead encourages going along with the fun.
Never quite achieves the balance of melodrama and dark comedy for which it's aiming.
