    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. Grant's timing is flawless, his delivery is perfection, and he once again demonstrates himself to be the movies' unrivaled master of sophisticated verbal comedy.
  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.

    An affable but undernourished romantic comedy that fails to match the freshness of the actress-producer and writer's previous collaboration, "Miss Congeniality."
  5. 42
    Suffers from poor comic timing and defective romantic pacing.
  6. 30
    Bland comedy romance. Grant and Bullock fail to put across the tired dialogue, and many scenes seem ad-libbed--in desperation.
  7. A numbingly unfunny romantic comedy. I hated every minute of it
