    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    As earnest as it is awkward, the film has so much spirit, it's hard to dismiss entirely, even at its considerable worst. show more

    Dumb premises have driven some wonderful romantic comedies, but for all its vaguely mystical trappings, Prywes's film lacks the magic that makes them work. show more
