Performers, Cast and Crew:
New York Times - 06/01/2001
"...[A] very funny comedy....Its relative modesty lends Mr. Schneider's deft, ingenious performance an unexpected glow of innocence..."
USA Today - 06/08/2001
"...Schneider, with his cherub curls and scrawny physique, adopts a pussycat persona that engenders goodwill....The resulting physical comedy is bound to trigger your laugh instinct..."
Hollywood Reporter - 05/29/2001
"...A comedy that's got heart....Both sprightly and tailored to [Schneider]..."
Variety - 06/04/2001
"...[An] underlying silly sweetness..."
Los Angeles Times - 06/01/2001
"...Outrageous and imaginative....Schneider is wonderfully expressive..."
Sight and Sound - 12/01/2001
"...A film that gives full scope to Schneider's winning line in broad physical comedy..."
