Critic Reviews

  1. The film is relentlessly peppy, often quite funny, sometimes a bit too convinced of its own adorableness and ultimately as smoothly reassuring as a TV sitcom.
  2. 50
    Amusing but extremely derivative.
  3. 60
    Eventually Stein's habit of dodging its own issues grows frustrating.
  4. Starts out as a lark, but veers into grittier, more emotionally complex territory -- just like a real relationship -- that the film doesn't have the chops to sustain.
  5. The actual finale, which so betrays what's come before it that it leaves one walking out of the theater holding a grudge against what was.
  6. 58
    Westfeldt becomes irritating. That's one of the film's points, but it's made a little too well.
