It’s a crisp and often hilarious female-centric social satire loaded with delicious talent from the TV-comedy pool.

Director Jill Soloway gets the most out of her actors, fleshing out their characters and letting us know what makes them tick. It's refreshing to hear dialogue that's natural and modern and doesn't try to pontificate. And the rewards are many.

Although there are moments when it feels the plot might move in unexpected directions, in the end, the expected cliches reign.

Village Voice

By Nick Schager
A film whose themes are as neatly laid out as its characters' behavior is preposterous.
