Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 04/16/1992
"...A provocative and touching meditation on trust..."
New York Times - 03/20/1992
"...Moorhouse has just the right acid wit....[The cast has] been very well chosen..."
Film Comment - 11/01/1991
"...A very impressive first film..."
Los Angeles Times - 04/17/1992
"...A pleasantly twisted little picture that has the kind of off-center impact money can't buy. A sharp and self-confident debut..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 05/15/1992
"...Moorhouse has a way of putting all the pieces into place for a scene so that it pays off in ways we could not anticipate..."
New York Observer -
"Electrifying! "One of the most joyous movie experiences in years."
Total Film - 11/01/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "The cast measures up nicely, not least Crowe, whose matey charm dishes unaffected proof of his early promise."
