  • Summary: Alex Sheldon (Wilson) is an author whose writer's block is the least of his problems - he also happens to be flat broke and owes Cuban loan sharks $100,000. Desperate, Alex secures the services of opinionated stenographer Emma Dinsmore (Hudson) to help him complete his novel and get paid by his publisher in time to save his skin. (Warner Bros.) Expand

  1. Alex & Emma isn't nearly as clever as Reiner's classic "Misery," a very different look at a male writer and his female companion. But it's diverting fun.
  2. 50
    Other than a high cuteness factor, there's not much here. This is a warmed-over, low-end recycling of director Rob Reiner's own "When Harry Met Sally."
  3. This is a movie full of tin-eared humor and situations too contrived to give romance a toehold.
  4. The actors make this fun if you can overlook the ludicrous view of Jeremy Leven's screenplay.
  5. Wilson brings low-wattage amiability to his part, as always. Hudson's mismatched with him but tries to set him afire.
  6. A painfully contrived and artificial exercise in futility.
  7. Astonishingly dull. The leads have zero chemistry, the supporting actors are even worse, and the script is a lifeless, draggy thing.
