Published Reviews

"The action moves at a fast and furious pace. Hatcher deserves credit for combining big laughs with musings on the fall of Communism."

Chris Jones, Variety

"A rollicking, up-to-the-minute comedy that has the edge of David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross and the complexity of a Moliere farce."
