Movie Reviews

A warm, empathic film
Morris Garchik | Austin, TX | 12/22/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This film is better than "Venice/Venice" because it has a better narrative. Is it a gabfest movie reminiscent of Stilman's "Metropolitan" and anything by Woody Allen? Absolutely.But what it lacks in budget is made up for in the performances and writing. The characters not only entertain, but by the end of this New Year's Day party learn something about themselves. Jakobson (who does her chimp noises in this film) is a star, period. This also marks one of David Duchovney's first appearances as Jakobson's boyfriend. If you're looking for a sit-down movie that won't give you a seizure, this is it."
A different side of Duchovny (!)
Caroline Dunn | So. San Francisco, CA USA | 10/19/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you buy this tape for any other reason than David Duchovny's presence in the film, you're in for a disappointment. Take my word for it--the story and acting are truly forgettable. Duchovny's 'appearance', however, is definitely worth the price....All I can say is "WOW""
This movie is like a good friend!

"I first saw this move eight or ten years ago, and it has since become a favorite that I "visit" with every year on New Year's Day. The themes of life transitions, new beginnings, and finding one's place in the world are especially resonant on New Year's Day when so many people take stock of the past year and make resolutions for the future. The characters are no more or less perfect than anyone's circle of friends, which makes them all the more loveable. Watching this movie has become a beloved annual ritual."
