Steve Martin, recently seen in panned movie the Cheaper By the Dozen sequel, fares better in this love triangle comedy drama, based on his own script.
Although based on a slight premise, the look of the film has come in for praise, as have the three central performances from Martin, as wealthy businessman Ray Porter and Jason Schwartzman as Jeremy, a young musician, both interested in shopworker Claire Danes (Mirabelle) who has to make a choice between them.
But some critics feel that the script, although having some great moments, is stretched too thinly over the running time with director Anand Tucker (Hilary and Jackie) having to extend certain scenes unnecessarily.
