  1. A snappily fun Mantrap Movie, as films about husband-hunting gals are known, is that rare hybrid of romantic comedy and Super Bowl.
  2. 63
    The movie does have charm and moments of humor, but what it doesn't have is romance.
  3. 60
    A sassy romantic battle of the sexes with a refreshing African-American slant.
  4. A likable, featherweight romantic comedy that hardly asks to be taken seriously, but its very triviality is, in some ways, quite significant.
  5. 40
    Ultimately feels somewhat overprocessed, and its humor is a little too broad at times -- it probably crosses the acceptable threshold of penis and boob jokes.
  6. 38
    The characters are so cartoonish, it's hard to care on any level -- except that it wastes such talented performers.
  7. Reviewed by: Robert Koehler

    Few recent movies have conceived their central female character more contemptuously -- a fanatic for a lifestyle that appears to have come from the bestselling "The Rules."
