  • Summary: Temptation takes on a wickedly delicious new flavor in About Adam, as every character is seduced...all by the same mysterious man: the sinfully sweet Adam (Townsend). Like his Garden of Eden counterpart, this sexy modern Dubliner has become the apple of one woman's (Hudson) eye --and everyone else's forbidden fruit. (Miramax Films) Expand

    Unlike "Four Weddings," which ultimately was moralistic and conservative in its message --—About Adam is a frolic free of any judgments, and marked by Stembridge's sparkling wit.
  2. 80
    Quick-witted, spicy Irish comedy.

    Kate Hudson's accent is spot-on, and she brings her megawattage to good use on the Gershwin standard, "The Man I Love."
  4. Seems refreshing, even mildly subversive.

    In a moralistic time, About Adam is something of an anomaly, as it airily sticks to its pro-naughtiness agenda.
  6. 60
    Sweet, likable and consistently engaging, if so insubstantial that it's always on the verge of blowing away.
  7. Cotton candy story with an acrid aftertaste.
