  1. The overall result is a romantic comedy that indulges fantasies, calms insecurities (can an ordinary bloke stack up?), and breaks and mends hearts with surgical precision.
  2. It comes as a bonus that this romantic comedy is one of the rare pictures of its type that actually is about something -- the double-edged sword of celebrity.
  3. Blithe and exhilarating romantic comedy.
  4. 91
    A pure, sweet romance that moves along with bouncy comedy and a touch of grown-up realism and rue.
  5. It's pure fluff, but as irresistible as cotton candy.

    It's irresistible.

    It's funny, sympathetic, mostly smart, and it boasts a likable cast of characters led by two performers who have star power and know how to use it.
  8. 88
    Its deadpan wit, ingenious fairy-tale premise and superbly accomplished cast will leave you feeling positively oxygenated.
  9. Reviewed by: Eleonore Snow

    A smart, sometimes pissingly funny romantic comedy that is also oddly unmoving and predictable in spots.

    This movie was duuuuummmb. It was long and stupid long looks at other characters that led to stupid innuendos that don't work until an ending that just died on the table. Full Review »
