"Nicholson was the king of the 70s and this is another great example of that. As good as he is, along with Burstyn and Dern, the surprise ending is what makes this film even more memorable."

"La coppia Rafelson/Nicholson non ripete l'incantesimo di Cinque pezzi facili. Film stanco e deludente che trascina il malessere di una generazione senza mai farlo esplodere. 5/10"

"Jack Nicholson plays the typical Bruce Dern role and Bruce Dern plays the typical Jack Nicholson role in this groovy crime/drama from Bob Rafelson. Ellen Burstyn completes the triangle of cool. "
