    I WANTED it to be a typical romantic comedy starring those two lovable people, Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant. And it was. And some of the dialogue has a real zing to it. There were wicked little one-liners that slipped in under the radar and nudged the audience in the ribs.
  2. Knows what it needs to do for both its stars, does it, and doesn't make a federal case about it. I'd watch these two together again in a New York minute.
  3. It is a lovely, amusing diversion from the start, but the depth of its poignancy by the time it's over comes as a surprise.
  4. Reviewed by: Kate Sullivan
    It's not a horrible film -- and it's a fuckload better than some other oops-we-fell-in-love comedies in recent years (e.g., J. Lo's doggy "The Wedding Planner"). It's just not very smart. Deeply rentable.
  5. 42
    Suffers from poor comic timing and defective romantic pacing.
  6. 30
    Coarse, cliched and clunky.
  7. A numbingly unfunny romantic comedy. I hated every minute of it

    This film plays to its two strengths, Bullock and Grant. Their charm and chemistry cause you to look more favourably upon the run-of-the-mill rom-com occurrences going on around them. Expand
