    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Sandra Bullock and Ben Affleck as star-crossed lovers, is the cinematic equivalent of Styrofoam: a weightless romantic comedy of synthetic feelings. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    A so-so, OK, perfectably acceptable, nice, rather charming romantic comedy with two stars who are entirely watchable. show more

    Susan Wloszczyna USA Today

    Works best as a ponderous metaphor for life's uncertainties. As a lighthearted comedy, the force, alas, is not with it. [19 March 1999, Life, p.13E] show more

    Leads us down the garden path of romance, only to abandon us by the compost heap of uplifting endings. And it's not even clever enough to give us the right happy ending. It gives us the wrong happy ending. show more

    If you are misguided or otherwise unfortunate enough to see Forces of Nature, you will find yourself the next day with but one image, one memory, in your head: Sandra Bullock's teeth. [19 March 1999, Friday, p.A] show more

    Make no mistake: This slackly paced picture doesn't gel. show more
