  1. What's immediately apparent -- and refreshing -- about Chasing Liberty is that it doesn't play cute with its premise.
  2. 63
    Chasing Liberty is not daring or adventurous, but, considering its release date (early January), it's more palatable than one might anticipate.
  3. The film means to be an unpretentious, engaging romantic comedy but stretches its charm awfully thin with a 110-minute running time.
  4. 50
    Surprisingly good in areas where it doesn't need to be good at all, and pretty awful in areas where it has to succeed.
  5. 50
    Light, doggedly formulaic romantic comedy that's almost instantly forgettable despite the sunny presence of teen queen Mandy Moore.
  6. Wall Street Journal

    A not-bad idea lurks inside this insipid story.
  7. The screenwriters claim they got the idea for this dreary thing by glimpsing a besieged Chelsea Clinton in the stands at a basketball game.
