    Not since "Love Story" has there been a movie that so shrewdly and predictably manipulated the emotions for such entertaining effect.

    This is a dreamy, romantic fantasy whose mood falls somewhere between magic and reality.

    Chicago Sun-TimesRoger Ebert

    Ephron develops this story with all of the heartfelt sincerity of a 1950s tearjerker (indeed, the movie's characters spend a lot of time watching "An Affair to Remember" and using it as their romantic compass).
