"the perfect film to watch on a long plane flight when you just want to waste time and possibly fall asleep."

"If you can get through/ignore the groan worthy music scenes there is an emotionally honest story, very well acted, with plenty of interesting turns and great characters. The culmination leaves you both satisfied and bothered, making it stay with you longer. The verisimilitude is a bit lacking, but this is a story about emotions and that's fine. Get your mom to watch it too."

"The period dressing, locations and visuals are outstanding. The characters are fun, the conceit is great. The staging is often excellent, but oddly terrible in spots. The acting is poor in spots, bad direction? The first 30 mins of the film should have been reshot. The story arc of Cheech is unconvincing, ironic as he rewrites the play to give its characters more convincing motivations. The Allen neurotic/frenetic aesthetic displaced what could have been more genuine comedic sequences. "

"A couple jokes will get ya and make you laugh hard, but overall it's just too dumb."

"Very well acted, great characters and dialog. Surprisingly good staging, dressing, locations, which makes it feel real and believable. The logic and motivation of the characters will make you scratch your head more than once. Dwayne Johnson did great, but he's so out of place in gritty 80's NYC."
