"A film of great color and vitality, and while it is transcendentally silly, I rather enjoyed that quality (...) Rating: ★★★ (out of 4)"
Roger Ebert: rogerebert.com
"It feels more like a prosaic knockoff than a classically inspired original."
Hal Hinson: The Washington Post
"It's a lot more fun to watch than Almodovar's previous 'Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!', but those who miss the wildness of his premainstream work will probably be only partially appeased."
Jonathan Rosenbaum: Chicago Reader
"There's a sense that the director knows what he wants to say, but isn't too sure how to go about saying it (...) Rating: ★★½ (out of 5)"
Marc Savlov: Austin Chronicle
"The movie has a few chortles, but most of it is too canned and synthetic to be much fun."
Owen Gleiberman: Entertainment Weekly
"That the film works at all and an unqualified triumph it ain't is down mostly to his star Victoria Abril (...) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"
Mat Snow: Empire
