  1. (Ford and Thomas) give Random Hearts muscle when the story turns flabby, spine where it sags, wings where it threatens to stay earthbound.
  2. Like a guy who finally gets what he wants, you just want to go home once it's over.
  3. This ponderous romantic melodrama...passes like a day behind bars.
  4. Reviewed by: David Ansen

    An adult love story that's trying for stiff-upper-lip poignancy.
  5. 40
    Has spread itself so thin between plot, subplots and great scads of floppy pop-psych, it has nothing else to do but lie down and die of exhaustion.
  6. Reviewed by: Tom Keogh

    What we have here is a small story in an oversized setting.
  7. Dissects the dicey question of fidelity with all the finesse of a Veg-O-Matic and leaves us with something closer to chopped liver than broken hearts.
