  1. Doesn't seem to have anything to say.
  2. A difficult time rising above the level of a reasonably nice TV-movie.
  3. Go
    When the writing is good, Go is good, and when the writing is flat, things fall apart.

  4. It has its moments.
  5. This is a pretty leaden cinematic experience.

  6. An authentically spirited popcorn movie.
  7. It does yield solidly comic performances.
  8. The story, ultimately, is about the classic conflict between a desire to cherish and protect one's unique gifts from a brutal world and a more practical instinct to compromise beauty.

  9. Regretfully, the beginning of this movie is as good as it ever gets.
  10. Not quite good enough to leave more than a vaguely pleasant, vaguely disappointing aftertaste.
  11. One way or the other, there really is something to be said for a movie which seems to revel in its own inherent comic-book silliness.
  12. These film-making provocateurs are divided between sweet and sour, between the romance of classic screwball comedy and Mad magazine on acid.
  13. The filmmakers went for cheap laughs as well as for some a little harder-earned. The only thing pure about this film is the dog, and he's magnificent.
  14. Even on its own terms, it stays sluggish.
  15. You just watch one carefully constructed but emotionally vacant image piled up on another - sometimes with regard to an overall effect, but often just for the sake of style over substance.
  16. Not quite Abbie.
  17. A rather flimsy but moderately charming British romance comedy.
  18. A feel-good, heartwarming film that all but drowns in saccharine.
  19. If the current flood of pre-millennial tension movies teaches us nothing else, it demonstrates how desperate we've all become to see whether we could make our peace in the time provided, if forced to by circumstances beyond our control.
  20. While writer-director Frank Darabont often fails to make King's story plausible, that's no fault of the actors. The performances are the movie's strong suit.
  21. There is a point in the movie when this mayhem crosses the line from wildly imaginative to downright insufferable.
  22. (Herron) just doesn't make the case that this book was worth filming.
  23. Mostly this film skims by on the surface, its conflict and climax visible from the opening five minutes.
  24. Eventually fizzles out badly.

  25. It all coalesces in a TV-level pleasantness, which isn't quite enough to fill a big screen.
  26. For adults, the film will drag in spots, but it's filled with all those values you hope to instill in your children.
  27. Infuriating on almost every conceivable level.
  28. Destined to be remembered not for its laugh-per-minute ratio, but for breaking a barrier of crudeness in mainstream movies.
  29. Hewitt's twin assets may be enough for a lot of moviegoers -- which may be the biggest con Heartbreakers pulls off.
  30. The plot is convoluted.
