Time Out says

Another one flies over the cuckoo's nest in this soft-hearted romantic three-hander. Joon (Masterson) plays cooky - sorry, severely emotionally unstable. She's a vegetarian painter in airy print dresses and bobby sox. Sam (Depp) is a kind of gentle man-child fantasy creation, who expresses himself through Chaplin and Keaton mime routines. Piggy-in-the-middle is Quinn's blue-collar straight man, Joon's together brother Benny, who looks after her at home, just managing to keep her from being institutionalised. He refuses to bless Sam and Joon's marriage of true minds...It's acted out in the secondary emotional register of the glass menagerie: whimsical, delicate, idiosyncratic, barmy.

A sweet, tasteful romantic comedy with spot-on acting by Johnny Depp and tasteful character development by Mary Stuart Masterson.
