Variety

Though picture is at times undermined by a lack of unifying perspective, its glimmers of greatness are a testament to the talent involved.

Los Angeles Times

By Kevin Thomas
These formidable actresses [Redgrave and Daly], abetted by a persuasive Connick, and by Hurt as the most genteel and benevolent of ghosts, set a high standard for a splendid ensemble cast.

The acting runs the gamut, with Daly and Redgrave at the top and a few characters looking as if they wandered onto the wrong movie set.

By Stephen Holden
Might be described as a muddy, cliché-ridden sudsfest that lurches uncertainly between comedy and soap opera without finding its emotional or visual footing.
