Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This Prelude to a Kiss is not only without charm and wit, but it's also clumsily set forth: many people seeing it may wonder what, in heaven's name, is going on."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"So-so romantic comedy fantasy that barely gets by."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"...a gentle, romantic fantasy that will delight most viewers and leave a few others scratching their heads."

‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"This adult fairy tale gives us a glimpse of our unity with others and celebrates the enduring power of love."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"The body-switching gimmick shouldn't work, but it really does."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"Are romantic comedies supposed to give you the willies?"
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
