Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: The comical part -- the part with the assaulting fauna -- is eccentric, knockabout fun, spattered with outlandish setups and amicably offbeat supporting players who reach out and steal the show.

- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Friday, March 10, 2006

Rotten: Add to this a confused moral message and it's clear that, as its title inadvertently suggests, this romantic comedy never gets off the ground.

Now that's my kind of girl! I like the rule part of Sarah Jessica Parker's job here, made it a little more interesting as a Rom-Com, in other ways it was very much typical of the genre, but it was entertaining and enjoyable

Don't really like MM nor SJP, decent supporting cast which helps the movie from tanking, except for that Zooey woman, worse than a BB to the sack, maybe not that bad. Terry Bradshaw acts? Yep, he's porkin' Kathy Bates, what a intro to the film bidness!
