    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Lacks the active verb it promises. It defines blah. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    What's immediately apparent -- and refreshing -- about Chasing Liberty is that it doesn't play cute with its premise. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    It's an innocuous, occasionally cute movie made watchable by the appealing Mandy Moore and hunky Matthew Goode, a Brit who has a bit of Hugh Grant charm in an otherwise silly role. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    A not-bad idea lurks inside this insipid story. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Boasts exceedingly high levels of improbability and an embarrassment of continuity and character shortfalls, but still has a certain bubbleheaded charm. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    The screenwriters claim they got the idea for this dreary thing by glimpsing a besieged Chelsea Clinton in the stands at a basketball game. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Chases romance and comedy across Europe for nearly two hours without ever quite catching either. Essentially a teenage rendition of William Wyler's immortal "Roman Holiday." show more

    Robert K. Elder Chicago Tribune

    As it turns out, "Liberty," a likable, light-as-air road comedy, is a much better movie than its sour-pun title. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Chasing Liberty is not daring or adventurous, but, considering its release date (early January), it's more palatable than one might anticipate. show more

    Chris Kaltenbach Baltimore Sun

    Lighthearted fluff, not piercing drama. Still, a little shot of reality -- or at least an acknowledgement of same -- could have done this film wonders. show more
