Shaun Myburg: Sean Penn is at his best in the depressing yet enjoyable love story, Penn's real life love for Robin Wright Penn is evident in his portrayel of a lunatic in love. While John Travolta's role is some what shorter than one would expect, he still delivers a near flawless performance once again. Not exactly a date movie but well worth the money if you're looking for some good depressing fun!

Clare Moolman: I feel strongly enough about this movie to warn anyone who was considering seeing it to - unless you get kicks out of a depressing movie with a less than pointless plot- to reconsider. This movie goes nowhere in an amazingly long period of time. It starts nowhere and ends, surprisingly, nowhere. Actors and actresses which one is not accustomed to seeing giving useless performances do just that in this total waste of fifteen bucks.
