L.A. Weekly - Ella Taylor
A fresh, buoyant, mischievous and rather jolly meditation - if that's the word for a movie as divinely nuts as this one is - on the meaning of life in an unhappy world.

ReelViews - James Berardinelli
A lot of people are going to describe it as a waste of time, yet there's a likeability to the quirky characters that held my interest while tickling my funny bone.

Variety - David Rooney
Clever but distancing, this existential comedy bounces along on the backs of its tasty cast, witty writing and stylistic verve.
70
Village Voice - J. Hoberman
There's more than a bit of Charlie Kaufman to the heady premise, although the scenario doesn't double back on itself--except perhaps in the joke of having Schwartzman's actual mother, Talia Shire, play his mother on-screen.
60
The Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen
Despite the unique premise and some truly inspired casting, the picture remains stuck in an existential rut of its own.
