Press Quotes

The funniest gag has to do with the would-be Joan of Arc leading a horse into a restaurant in hopes of impressing a producer. The least funny (and much more representative) joke has the chef, and all the assorted idiots who work in his kitchen, spitting into the soup.

     —Janet Maslin, The New York Times
