    Not a comic masterpiece, but it's entertaining and efficient, and provides a showcase for its stars. It's on the level of a good sitcom.

    Isn't exactly a good movie, but it turns out not to be bad, either. It's a romantic comedy that strains to be screwball but at least is likable.
  3. Plays strictly to formula, the only real surprise is its apparently ironic title.

    Designed to be a date movie, Rules could have stronger male appeal than many comedies of its ilk.

    Has something many movies don't these days: interesting and attractive people talking to each other.

    This could be the year's smartest romantic comedy.

    This isn't all gold--there are lame riffs on a booze-swilling dog and a flabby old man with a boner--but it's well above average.
