    Bob Graham San Francisco Chronicle

    Manages to do the impossible: It makes Lopez bland. show more

    Don't buy a ticket for this one, even if the theater is having a fire sale on Raisinets. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The best thing about a movie as silly as this is that it makes such modest demands on your attention. As the story unfolded with all the energy of California in a Stage 3 alert, I staved off brain death by trying to imagine an alternate version. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    At its best when it employs the conventions of romantic comedies to satirize them through the eyes of an anti-romantic wedding planner. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    Has a lot of nerve making fun of Olivia Newton-John's "I Honestly Love You," as the choice of newlyweds fated for divorce in 12 to 14 months. The Wedding Planner should have such a shelf life. show more

    Kevin Maynard Mr. Showbiz

    The film's greatest flaw is its miscast leads, who conjure up zero dewy-eyed, wish-fulfillment magic. show more

    Jay Carr Boston Globe

    The unevenness of what surrounds the star couple is indicative of the script's inability to muster anything more than intermittent sophistication. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    A plot like this is so hopeless that only acting can redeem it. Lopez pulls her share of the load, looking geuninely smitten by this guy and convincingly crushed when his secret is revealed. But McConaughey is not the right actor for this material. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    The Wedding Planner dissolves into a mopey, leaden romance that piles on the contrivances before limping to its foregone -- and rote -- conclusion. show more
