    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    With his crisp intelligence always a step away from collapsing into paralyzing self-consciousness, and his polished good-boy veneer often giving way to hysteria and vulgarity, Grant is a delight. [18 March 1994, Daily Notebook, p.C-3] show more

    Susan Wloszczyna USA Today

    It's a clever, multitiered affair built around the title rituals, frosted with delicious characterizations and tasty repartee. [11 March 1994, Life, p.4D] show more

    Gene Siskel Chicago Tribune

    A better film about love delayed than "Sleepless in Seattle." It's funnier, more credible, more bittersweet and the characters are a whole lot brighter. Naturally, it won't be as big a hit. [18 March 1994, Friday, p.C] show more

    Ann Hornaday Baltimore Sun

    The movie dazzles with its slick lines, but there's a situational intelligence at play too -- little vignettes involving minor characters are begun at one wedding and then evolve into major events at the next. show more

    Austin Chronicle

    A romantic screwball comedy, one is as intoxicated by words, dialogue and characters as by love. show more
