    Director David Kane handles the sprawling cast with aplomb as his characters learn some new steps in this life-and love-affirming movie. show more

    Born Romantic feels less like it was born than assembled, in a kooky Britcom factory. It's no "Four Weddings and a Funeral," but it's certainly a happier conception than last month's "Maybe Baby." show more

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    The shame of it all is that Kane somehow managed to assemble an extraordinary cast, whose fine performances can't surmount the tedium of his script. show more

    Chuck Wilson L.A. Weekly

    Kane believes in happy endings, but he makes his characters earn theirs, as each couple is forced, ever so subtly, to face its own inner nonsense. The filmmaker has divine actors at his disposal. show more

    Dana Stevens The New York Times

    In its own modest, genial terms, the picture succeeds: it never wants to be more than charming and sweet, and it invites us to imagine London as a cozy, happy small town where coincidental encounters are everyday occurrences. show more

    Highly enjoyable when all its gears are clicking, but rarely as good as it should be. show more

    Luke Y. Thompson New Times (L.A.)

    Though perhaps too mainstream for the art-house crowd and too foreign for the multiplex, Born Romantic is a natural crowd-pleaser, and deserves to be more successful than its limited engagement may permit it to be. show more
