  • What starts as freshly spun cotton candy ends as something pink, sticky and indigestible. You leave the theater wanting to puke it up. show more

  • A very smart, very shrewd movie, and the smartest, shrewdest thing about it is the way it masquerades as just a fluffy comedy, a diversion, a trifle. show more

  • Dragging on too long is a more serious flaw in a romantic comedy than it might be in a complex drama. We don't ask much of a movie like this, but we do require it to be snappy, clever and quick. show more
