    A perfect date movie for boys and girls, boys and boys, and boys just pretending to like boys.
  5. A thin, by-the-numbers romantic comedy that nevertheless features one saving grace: Matthew Perry.
  6. A cute, often very funny romantic comedy and an effective vehicle for Matthew Perry.

    Best to wait until the movie makes it to TV - where its missteps will loom less large.
  8. Television sitcom-style directing and writing.
  9. 50
    Dismayingly predictable and rote, a simple premise played out in the most obvious way possible.
  10. Perry and Campbell are charming despite this straitjacket plot.

    So much of Three to Tango is calculated to push the proper emotional buttons that it's ultimately unsatisfying.
  12. The vapid plot line follows the same narrative arc as "Tootsie" but hasn't the heart or purpose of that film.

    An uncomfortable go at romantic comedy that belabors the same mistaken-for-gay premise as"In & Out," but without much of that film's charm.
  14. 40
    For each prejudice the film tries to shatter, it furthers a different stereotype.

    Does have its share of bona fide chuckles, but it falls shy of its possibilities.

    Relax and enjoy the brain candy.
  17. The movie's half over before it really starts to whack at the funny bone.

    Trips early and never gets up off the floor.
  19. Puts more miles on plot that was worn out long ago.

    Placing gay characters front and center in big Hollywood movies is supposed to inspire cheers, not the case of the creeps that comes with Three To Tango.
  21. 30
    The kind of movie that TV stars do when they're on hiatus and trying to squeeze one in.

    Typical of this movie's cluelessness is the way it cavalierly traffics in stereotypes.
  23. In trying to be both bold and nonthreatening, the movie ends up seeming tame and mildly offensive.
  24. 25
    Mired in a plot of such stupidity.
  25. 6
    Inept, unfunny, and so brimming with bad ideas it's a wonder it wasn't manufactured by mandrills rather than adult humans.

    I didn't think Matthew Perry could find a romantic comedy more inert or inane than the 1997 fiasco ''Fools Rush In.''
