    A minor comedy, though a major delight. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    Without the surprise, realism, audacity and upstart cheekiness -- pun intended -- that made "The Full Monty's" blue-collar strippers so irresistible. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    There is not much here that comes as a blinding plot revelation, but the movie has a raffish charm and good-hearted characters, and like "The Full Monty" it makes good use of the desperation beneath the comedy. show more

    Ray Conlogue The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Isn't quite funny enough to make it as a comedy, or touching enough to make it as a romance. It's a pleasant effort that doesn't hit any of its targets. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Loren King Boston Globe

    The movie moves predictably to its formulaic finale, which -- unwittingly perhaps -- reprises Plummer's own sugary classic, ''The Sound of Music.'' show more

    Overall, it's good, not great. show more

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    Neither the appealing cast nor the bouncing, ska-inflected soundtrack can keep the party going. show more
