    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    Manages to make its live actors sound -- and even sometimes look -- computer generated. This wan, sluggish comedy wouldn't pass muster as a premium-cable original, but here it is on the big screen.

    ReelViews James Berardinelli

    A movie that is relentlessly inoffensive and completely unoriginal –- two qualities that combine to make it only sporadically charming and rarely (if ever) compelling.

    USA Today Mike Clark

    If anything, Grant seems to be getting funnier, and he now has the ability to elevate material the way another Grant -- Cary -- did.

    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    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.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    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.

Pause for kids 13 & under

Predictable romantic comedy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has a brief scene of potty humor, in addition to references to casual relationships and infidelity. Two of the characters participate in a non-explicit game of strip chess. A woman's head gets stuck on a man's pants in a suggestive way.

  • Families can talk about how Lucy and George are molded by their families' (very different) expectations. Lucy says that she will never live up to her mother's expectations, how does this drive her behavior? Why does George say that it is worse when one's family has no expectations at all? How do the characters change as they are influenced by one another? Are these changes always for the good?
