Movie Reviews

  • warm, fuzzy and slightly naughty comedy
    4 of 5 by Chris Vognar [The Dallas Morning News ]
  • ultimately more cloying than poignant.
    2 of 4 by Tim Knight [Reel ]
  • its eagerness to please (both the audience and the characters) leaves an unpleasant aftertaste.
    2 of 5 by Jesse Hassenger [Filmcritic ]
  • has some touching moments and tiptoes around a strong, emotional theme, but loses itself with wooden acting and tedious dialog.
    3 of 5 by Aaron West [EFilmCritic ]
  • full of sharply observed and funny detail
    by Ella Taylor [L.A. Weekly ]
  • Flat and forgettable
    1 of 4 by Renee Graham [Boston Globe ]
  • despite some amusing and touching scenes, it is a bit too sitcom-like for its own good.

  • crowd-pleasing, tear-tugging film about relationships
    3 of 4 by John Anderson [Newsday ]
