Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Everything looks primed for civilized amusement, but somewhere along the way the laughs dropped off, together with the question mark in the title.Anthony Lane, New Yorker, 12.28.2010
How do you know if a romantic comedy isn't working? Generally if it's neither especially romantic, nor particularly comic. And in this picture, no matter how many times he keeps coming up to bat, Brooks keeps striking out.Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, 12.17.2010
Overlong but occasionally appealing rom com in which it is the intangibles of the relationships that prove to be everythingLouise Keller, Urban Cinefile, 01.24.2011
Not Brooks' best, but it has its moments.Simon Braund, Empire Magazine, 01.25.2011
