Reviews
Mine: Enjoyable, if some what self-indulgent. I just don't like Ethan Hawke and when he is on screen I want to hit him.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: An incisive examination of Generation X, whose young people are confused, and repelled by the world being handed to them; on the other hand, a traditional love triangle, with Ryder trying to choose between straight-arrow Stiller and laid-back superdude Hawke (who's so cool he doesn't unwrap a candy bar before biting off a piece). Generally well done, with Ryder especially appealing, and Garofalo a standout as her best friend. Debuting director Stiller features his mom, Anne Meara, as a newspaperwoman, and his sister, Amy, as Ryder's ``Psychic Phone Partner. '' Written by Helen Childress (who has a bit as a waitress). Jeanne Tripplehorn has unbilled cameo. Coproduced by Danny DeVito.
