    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    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

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    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

    Megan Lehmann New York Post

    The problem lies with the paucity of sizzle between the romantic leads, Renée Zellweger and Ewan McGregor. They just don't look like they're having any fun together, particularly the bony Zellweger, who has trouble filling out the wow-worthy ensembles and perpetually looks like she's sucking on a lemon. show more
