    Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle

    This harmless bit of fluff lacks the element of surprise but is not without random charming moments supplied by its incandescent star. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    The movie clichés are bearable mainly because the cast rises above the formulaic material. There are also some bona fide laughs to be had once the setting switches to a luxurious resort in the Czech Republic. show more

    It's too bad there's so little of LL Cool J as the secret object of Georgia's fantasies. He'd make a funny, nimble, sexy romantic lead with just a bit more screen time. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    A movie that takes advantage of the great good nature and warmth of Queen Latifah, and uses it to transform a creaky old formula into a comedy that is just plain lovable. show more

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    There are a number of excruciating moments that are almost too silly to mention. show more
