  1. Works best of all as a vehicle for Richard Gere, who has simply never looked better or held the screen more securely.

    So laden with forced plot twists that it will never be able to recover.
  3. Fails to be the histrionic bubble bath that you want to carry you away.

    Ultra-glossy weepie turns out to be something of a guilty pleasure.
  5. 40
    Weepy, overwrought love story.

    It is all style and no substance.
  7. Not only do they (Gere and Ryder) lack chemistry, they lack physics, zoology, botany and geology.

  9. Flagrantly old-fashioned, triple-hankie tear-jerker.

  15. Near-unwatchable romantic melodrama.

    Manages to jerk more than a few tears at all the right moments.

    Who cares about old guys and young girls? This handsome romantic slop finds other problems.
  19. 10
    Not that much deep thinking went on here.
