  1. An entertainment success, a triple threat of fresh writing, inspired directing, and, yes, good acting.
  2. While it's certainly too derivative to be a great movie, it's too goodhearted and modest in its aspirations to be denied.
  3. Though I liked Love's unhurried pace and oddball digressions, its obligatory romantic-comedy resolution seemed too schematic for what had preceded it.

  5. An unfortunate casting decision, however, comes close to sabotaging a witty script.
