Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The performances represent ensemble playing of an order Hollywood films seldom have time for, with the screenplay providing each character with at least one big scene.
Fresh: An irresistibly satisfying cultural artifact.
Fresh: Funny and ferociously smart.
Rotten: Characters are generally middle-of-the-roaders, and pic lacks a tough-minded spokesman who might bring them all up short for a moment.
This movie is wonderful with many well known actors including Kevin Kline, Glenn Close, Jeff Goldblum, William Hurt. This movie is above all else about friendship. Brought together after one of their own takes his own life. This movie shows how deep and personal their friendships really are. This movie is worth buying and has a great soundtrack to boot. Buy it you won't be disappointed!
