    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Just soak up that Tuscan sun and wonder when Lane will get another movie, like "Unfaithful" or "A Walk on the Moon," that will let her really shine. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Chalk it all up to prettiness, if you like, but Lane's case has more to do with spirit -- with warmth and emotional readiness, plus a kind of open-book quality that makes her both lovely and comical, usually at the same time. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    The whole movie is at once formulaic, clichéd and predictable, yet surprising, engaging and filled with subtle, unexpected details. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe
