Reviews

“A DELIGHTFUL, IMAGINATIVE SCREWBALL COMEDY written and directed by Andrew Bergman (Blazing Saddles, The In-Laws). Brando's wonderful low-key performance—less a parody of his Don Corleone than a revised-and-corrected life-size version—never falters. Sweet and warm as well as manic, this is full of loopy surprises.”
– Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

“A quirky sleeper with something truly unexpected around every corner. Its best surprises are the appearance of the long-absent Marlon Brando, in his first starring role in a decade, and his comic charisma and chemistry with co-star Matthew Broderick.”
– Joe Brown, The Washington Post
