Two friends who've convinced themselves they would never make a good couple discover they might just be wrong in this romantic comedy. Oliver (Ashton Kutcher) and Emily (Amanda Peet) first met when they were college students sharing a flight from California to New York; Emily spontaneously seduced Oliver on the plane, and they spent the next few days together in the city. When they parted, however, Emily decided not to pursue a relationship with Oliver, even though he was obviously interested. Over the next several years, circumstances kept putting them in one another's paths, and over… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is the kind of movie where the lovers don't have to worry about fate keeping them apart -- all they do is manufacture excuses not to be together, because if they didn't, you wouldn't have a movie."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
"A pleasant little romantic comedy that doesn't try too hard and has the virtue of doing a few things differently."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"This grueling, training-wheel romance comedy covers a six year stretch of time in which Generation Y boy toy Oliver Martin (Ashton Kutcher) slowly realizes that he can't wait for his life plans to gel before committing to his affection for his narcissist"
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"full review in Greek"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"...the script gives the actors virtually nothing to do and nothing to say in this subpar genre entry."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"The only reason I was rooting for them to get together was that than they would both be off the market."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"A Lot Like Love ... is a cute movie."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"The typical romantic comedy keeps the leads apart or until just before the closing credits. This film falls flat because they engage in sex during the picture's opening sequence."
‑ Kam Williams, Princeton Town Topics
"[Ashton] Kutcher and [Amanda] Peet are likable stars, but A Lot Like Love doesn't have anything original to say."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
"Uma obra aceitável, simpática e até mesmo divertida - e se isto acontece, os méritos cabem ao diretor Nigel Cole e à simpatia de Ashton Kutcher."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"An unfortunate casting decision, however, comes close to sabotaging a witty script with fresh insights into the trend of young people postponing marriage while waiting for some grand plan of theirs to materialize."
‑ Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle
"Just when you despair that a whole generation could grow up without a decent date movie, without a romantic comedy that works well enough to call its own, Ashton Kutcher goes and surprises you."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"At least it's not aggressively stupid...A Lot Like Love is an agreeably mediocre movie that can be watched, enjoyed and forgotten about in the space of a single day."
‑ Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
"While not as aggressively mindless as many of its ilk, flick suffers from simple fatigue, as in: We're tired of seeing the exact same love story over and over."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVDTalk.com
"Successfully turns the rom-com genre on its head."
‑ Joe Utichi, FilmFocus
