"There’s much flailing, pounding, prancing, shouting, and grimacing going on, and it pulls the audience out of Kaufman’s story. The actors seem at times to be aided and abetted by director Rust. The pace of the dialogue will slow down to indulge the actors’ displays of cartoonish mannerisms...It may be true that comedy is harder than dying. But pushing the funny is seldom a good strategy. It isn’t a good one here."
