According Jonathan Rosenbaum of the Chicago Reader, the film is "A friendly demonstration of how two actors with charisma and a relaxed writer-director (Brad Silberling) can get a nice movie practically nothing." While that Desson Thomson, of The Washington Post, believes that the film is "a natural but failed experiment about a pleasant encounter, to style independent films".
