    A sweet, entertaining retread of an ancient formula, in which opposites attract despite all the forces arrayed to push them apart.

    If you want daring or original, Fools Rush In isn't the movie to see. Like 90% of all romantic comedies, it follows a time-honored formula that allows little room for variation.

    Hurried, harried. [14 February 1997, pg.D4]
  4. The result is a stilted culture clash and a lot of monochromatically conflicted facial expressions from Perry before he's thawed by the love of an ethnic woman.
  5. The film never gets past the unlikelihood that its characters have much chance of living happily ever after. Or of finding real heat or humor along the way.
  6. 30
    Movies don't come much lamer than Fools Rush In.
  7. This isn't real life. It isn't even a movie. It's an extended sitcom. And for the first time in your life, you'll actually beg for commercials.
