  1. Breathless and petite yet powerfully in-your-face, Fisher combines dizzy femininity and no-nonsense verve in the manner of a classic screwball heroine. She's like Carole Lombard reborn as a tiny angel-faced dynamo.

    This movie has no light to shed on the matter. It is its own contradiction: a film about confessions in which nothing much is confessed.

    As a young lady who can't say no to a beautiful dress or accessory, Isla Fisher is not to be denied, and her irrepressible comic personality overcomes a number of the film's impediments.
  4. A thin, largely unfunny comedy that marries lazy filmmaking with bad timing.
  5. 30
    A loud, garish and very untimely romantic comedy.
  6. 30
    Put this one back on the shelf, and walk away.
  7. Plays like both a supremely outmoded chick-lit adaptation and an outrageously obscene gesture as the economy continues to swallow up livelihoods, homes, and hope.

    Isla Fisher is such a charming actress, she can do better than the material in this movie. The idea behind this film is a good one, but the Isla Fisher is such a charming actress, she can do better than the material in this movie. The idea behind this film is a good one, but the screenplay just doesn't take advantage of it. It's too routine and predictable. Good supporting cast. Expand

    The main actor did a decent job with a lousy script and charisma-free supporting actors.

    Easily one of the worst movies I have ever seen and certainly the worst I have ever paid to see. The plot held together like cottage cheese Easily one of the worst movies I have ever seen and certainly the worst I have ever paid to see. The plot held together like cottage cheese and made ridiculous plot hops from one scene to the the next. All of these ridiculous lurches in the story take place on top of a cast as unconvincing as i have encountered in recent memory. Save your money now by not seeing it in the theater; save your time later by not watching it at home. Expand
