    A sweet, entertaining retread of an ancient formula, in which opposites attract despite all the forces arrayed to push them apart.
  2. Perhaps a bit miscast, and with a penchant for too many double-takes, Perry nonetheless is game.

    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.

    The best that can be said is that neither Matthew Perry nor Salma Hayek embarrass themselves, but they're both appealing enough that the same could probably be said if they were starring in a commercial for a hair-replacement system.

    Movies don't come much lamer than Fools Rush In.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this film, obviously more than most people. Salma Hayek and Matthew Perry lift this well above the ordinary romantic I thoroughly enjoyed this film, obviously more than most people. Salma Hayek and Matthew Perry lift this well above the ordinary romantic comedy. Although the story is pretty routine, it does have the unique twist of the clashing cultures that spark a more interesting story. It's the stars that make it work. Expand
