    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    The actors, especially Grace, fight hard against a schizoid script (the kids are rubes one sec, hipsters the next) and cotton-candy direction from Robert Luketic (Legally Blonde). It's a losing battle. show more

    Carla Meyer San Francisco Chronicle

    [Duhmel] brings surprising nuance to an ostensibly shallow character, a guy who's not really bad, just caught up in his own celebrity. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    Unexpectedly charming. It's a classic date movie, but it also will appeal to pre-dating tweens and middle-aged romantics. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The great lesson of the film is that humor, honest feelings and genuine exuberance trump technique. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Ironically, what the comedy lacks is the sly imagination and satirical underpinnings of the best sex comedies from that (Doris Day) era. Instead, exposition is poorly executed, genuine laughs come infrequently and you quickly lose confidence that the filmmakers even understand what their basic joke is. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    Isn't as funny as it wants to be, but it has a sheer pleasantness that stands out in this season of heavy-handed entertainments. show more

    Connie Ogle Miami Herald

    Half-hearted satire of Hollywood and small-town life, and Bosworth is not particularly memorable in it. show more
