    To sum up, Definitely, Maybe is crap with compensations. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    A sophisticated story of disappointment and accommodation. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    It's generally enjoyable, amusing and more sophisticated than most films in this genre. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    There's no maybe about its standing as romantic comedy -- definitely bad. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Definitely, Maybe gets too coy in spots, and Brooks is a sharper writer at this point in his career than he is a director. But for a film with a half-dozen fully-formed characters that spans 15 years and works in a swell detail about a 1943 edition of "Jane Eyre" - well, it definitely works. No maybes about it. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    It's a decent Valentine's date-night flick, and should earn Reynolds the attention he'll need to snare stronger leading roles. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    The film is far from a complete washout, and this is chiefly a tribute to its immensely attractive and appealing cast. Ryan Reynolds proves to have the stuff of a true leading. man. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    Keeps you interested in its characters and isn’t afraid of complicating your sympathies a little. In these dog-day months for romantic comedy, that means a lot. show more

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    A lot fresher and bit more sophisticated than the ordinary run of maudlin chick flicks and crude gross-out sex farces that now pass for romantic comedies. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Brooks' take on the ups and downs of modern romance and the unexpected turns it takes is smart, funny, and (above all) uncommon. It's not hard to recommend this on Valentine's Day or at any other time. show more

    I just watched this movie tonight & I said the same thing about those headphones! I want a pair too! I really enjoyed this movie alot. My boyfriend didn't care for it though. A very delightful chick-flick. Ryan Reynolds is great! Loved him in "Just Friends." That's another movie I just love for some strange reason!!

    Okay, these knuckleheads in Hollywood know how to ruin a good idea. What started as a great movie for the family, -if your family is 12 and up, - turned into a movie for ages 15 and up. What a blown opportunity. Further, I hear enough political statements on the news, I do not need some mindless movie makers to throw it at me during a flick, -especially if I am paying to be there. Save your money, and leave this one alone. Wait until it comes out on free TV, i.e. TNT or the networks.

    "Definitely, Maybe" is nice little romantic comedy but it's not for the kids. Oh, it's not for the Clinton's either. Read my full review at

    I must agree with those who already mentioned this. My daughter actually asked to leave after the first 20 minutes or so. She was embarassed! Just too much information for kids that age. We, like many thought it was going to be a sweet romantic comedy.
