  1. Reviewed by: Phoebe Flowers
    A sporadically hilarious, acid-tongued romp through the darker sides of romance that refuses to back down.
  2. Reviewed by: Rod Dreher
    A lame TV sitcom with big-screen ambition that's almost touching in its hopelessness.
  3. 50
    There's more than a hint of self-pitying male-castration fantasy in writer-director Jeff Franklin's portrayal.
  4. A mean-spirited comedy...that steals the rampaging-psycho-chick formula from ``Fatal Attraction'' and tries to make it funny.
  5. Reviewed by: Anita Gates
    A one-dimensional comedy that mostly falls flat.
  6. Reviewed by: Cate McQuaid
    It would have done better to go straight to video, where it belongs.
  7. Not just unromantic, it's unfunny, too.
  8. Love Stinks is what bad network TV comedy would be like if there were no censorship and less talent.
  9. Low comedy doesn't get any lower than Love Stinks.
  10. Reviewed by: Robert Horton
    A gyno-phobic fantasy about the date who won't go away.
  11. 30
    Exploits all the cliches about shrewish women and pussy-whipped men without achieving satire.
  12. 30
    Another frivolous product of whiny male anxiety that's as funny as a sitcom but longer and more expensive.
  13. 29
    A drearily over-cynical farce.
  14. Reviewed by: Other (Specify)
    Whatever stinks in this theater, it isn't love.
  15. 25
    Lowbrow humor is one thing...but Love Stinks sinks the bar beyond comprehension.
  16. There's gangsta rap with funnier insights into the opposite sex.
  17. Reviewed by: Tom Keogh
    A painfully unfunny movie.
  18. Reviewed by: Robert Koehler
    Lacks the comic style or abandon to make its cynical turn on male-female relationships anything more than a short-lived stunt.
  19. 20
    Has a sour undertone that strangles its cheap laughs.
  20. An awful, misanthropic, deadly unfunny and badly acted war-of-the-sexes travesty.
  21. This movie reeks, stinks, smells and destroys life as we know it with one olfactory destructive blast.
  22. Stewart's insistently ironic delivery of every line becomes an irritant in a movie that is already monstrously irritating.
