    A fresh and beautifully timed, if slight, romantic comedy.

    It's cute and jokey and has no particular edge.

    Wants to be many things, but ends up being not much of anything.
  4. 30
    The movie's repeated attempts to combine seriousness and humor as in a blender give it a dysfunctionally earnest tone.
  5. A desperately unfunny comedy that wastes a brand-name cast.
  6. Reviewed by: Gary Dretzka

    The storyline isn't coherent, the music stinks, the characters are one-dimensional, the dialogue is insipid and it is neither funny nor romantic.
  7. So utterly awful, you're tempted to build a time machine, then go back in history and try to make sure Ward's parents never meet.
