At the Movies:
If you're making a movie about a man who has a strange noise coming from his pants, you should cast an actor who looks different when it isn't.
Bottom line, this is American Pie for boys-will -be- boys in the fiftysomething age range.
New York Times:
This movie wants to be sweet and dark at the same time, but it is as distant as a planet's satellite.
If you're expecting humor of the Sanders quality here, you won't get it, nor will you find that Shandling has a wide enough range as an actor.
Bening, even in a formula role like this one, is so lovable she actually makes you believe that she'd melt the resolve of a technocratic space visitor.
It's amazing that a movie with so many sex jokes can turn out to be so unfunny.
The picture barely works as a silly adult sex farce, it isn't nearly freewheeling and naughty enough.
Thirteen year-old boys would love the film if they could get into this R-rated picture.
