    Where "Brockback" leaves its lovers where gay love stories have left them for centuries - isolated, ostracized and miserable - this small comedy finds a far more liberated alternative for everyone involved. In its own modest way, it's the far more radical film.
  2. The fluffmeister here is writer-director Ol Parker, and say this for young Ol: This may be his feature debut, but the guy is one hell of a smooth engineer.
  3. Beyond the lipstick-lesbian twist, this is a formula flick, but the acting is excellent. It also has genuine laughs.

    The film nearly works in spite of its adherence to formula, thanks to clever one-liners and appealing, sharply drawn supporting performances.
  5. The snappy wit of the script make Ol Parker's British romantic comedy the equivalent of comfort food a pleasant cinematic snack.
  6. 63
    Imagine Me & You isn't unpleasant, but it is unremarkable. If nothing else, it proves that gay romances can be just as uninspired as their heterosexual counterparts.
  7. A pleasant if pedestrian British romantic comedy.

    A slick but slight Brit pic, chockfull with tart one-liners and pretty posh people, with one major twist: The romantic leads are both women.
  9. 50
    Not only is there not enough panting to bunch any panties, this polite romp could use more of that other L-word: laughs.
  10. Congratulations are in order for Rachel's sexual awakening, but we might as well applaud the dull girl for falling in love with the nearest bunch of lilies rather than the florist.

    A year ago next week, Debra Messing's "The Wedding Date" arrived DOA. And now this. In terms of movies that matter, it looks as if the wedding-funeral motif will continue.

    Offers a few laughs - and little sexual heat.
  13. An innocuous, fluffy little nothing of an almost-pleasant movie.
  14. 50
    The sex in the movie is so mild that I assumed the R rating was generated primarily by the gay theme, until I learned the R is in fact because of too many f-words.
  15. Imagine settles disappointingly for rom-com cliches. It doesn't even bother to explore its own premise.
  16. If you're going to fall for this movie, you're going to have to buy not only the idea that adultery is excusable if you're "following your heart," but also that following your heart amounts to falling in love at first sight, a formulation that seems adolescent at best.
  17. Unapologetically cliched and determinedly upbeat (even when it shouldn't be).
  18. Has its charms, but for a movie about loving radically, it sure plays it safe.
  19. A safe same-sex movie the family can embrace. At heart, it's a Britcom: a British situation comedy with superficial characters, mildly naughty humor and a familiarity that may make even homophobes comfy.
  20. 50
    A tepid sort of romantic comedy, with lengthy stretches during which nothing much happens punctuated by bouts of paralyzing boredom or, on rare occasions, random but fleeting hilarity.
  21. Strains so hard to be upbeat you can almost hear gears shifting.

    But while the film's tasty London settings add a whiff of elegance, Parker's confection collapses because we never believe Rachel and Luce as destined soul mates. The blame rests entirely with Perabo's meager performance.

    Parker has a sensitive approach to the crise d'amour, but his lacklustre leading ladies contribute to an uneven tone.
  24. I guess there's something progressive going on when a lesbian love story gets to be just as dreadful and tacky as most straight ones.
