    A Cinderella story with star appeal going for it and everything else against it. show more

    Were the material not so thin, it would be even more fun than it is seeing Fiennes get to be loose on screen for once. He's pleasant, but we never feel this guy could get elected. Whenever he smiles, Fiennes brings to mind the title of Disney's deluxe new DVD: "The Complete Goofy." show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Not only is there no magnetism between Fiennes and Lopez, he's a lead balloon and she's helium-filled. Happily, their odd chemistry doesn't sink this fairy tale. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    Ralph Fiennes has faced a lot of acting challenges in his career, but playing a New York Republican who could win an endorsement from Susan Sarandon might be the toughest. Mostly, he handles the task by simply smiling warmly throughout, and gets away with it. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    There won't be a person in the audience who can't guess exactly how it will turn out. Yet it goes through its paces with such skill and charm that, yes, I enjoyed it. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    It's Lopez who's the proper focus of this dream. So intent has she been on becoming a superstar in the past few years that many people have forgotten that, given decent material, she can act. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    As an actress, Lopez is a bit stiff, as she has been in all of her movies save "Out of Sight." It really doesn't matter much here, given the sparks between her and Fiennes and the fact that the role is pretty much form-fitted to her public persona. show more

    Mark Caro Chicago Tribune

    The comedy part of the equation is awfully mild, however. This is a movie that aims for warm smiles rather than belly laughs. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    A pleasant experience, if not the dazzling entertainment Lopez fans were hoping for. show more
