Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: It's a warm, if pallid, romantic comedy that may not do much more to burnish Lopez's reputation, but will certainly not bruise it.
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Friday, December 13, 2002
Rotten: The rags-to-riches plot should keep hopeless romantics happy, but you just can't help wondering what Hugh Grant, Sandra Bullock and a team of decent joke writers might have achieved with this one.
- Anna Smith, Empire Magazine, Friday, April 16, 2010
Rotten: This piece of fluff is nothing more than a wanna-be "Pretty Woman." Pass, please.
- David Foucher, EDGE Boston, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Cute, silly rom-com with Lopez and Ralph Fiennes an unexpectedly compatible team. Natasha Richardson is most amusing playing a society nitwit.

This story has no surprises, but it's pleasing that Jennifer Lopez has quit her wind-up doll routine and put personality back on screen. Ralph Fiennes is slumming but his Englishness reduces the cheese. The support cast is fun.
