Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's the cinematic equivalent of having a saccharine-coated tongue depressor jammed down your throat."
‑ Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune
"This may not be the worst romantic comedy of the year, but surely it's the flattest. The thing has no energy. It just lies there, waiting to be kicked."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"The adorable Kinnear is not doing himself any favors with overblown sit-coms like this."
‑ Chris Wright, Boston Phoenix
"It's as compelling as a car commercial, as deep as a diaper pail."
‑ Dan Webster, Spokesman-Review (Washington)
"This astonishingly inept romantic comedy ignores the most basic rules of character development, and demands that the Robertsons do and think things so stupid and venal that it's the next best thing to impossible to like or care about them."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Keith Sample's film aspires to the innocent charm of a newlywed comedy like Barefoot in the Park, but gets bogged down in witless sex jokes."
‑ Dave Kehr, New York Daily News
"Kooky Joan Cusack can't provide sufficient comic relief in this incredibly naive attempt at schmaltz."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"A Smile Like Yours makes no one smile or cry, just wince. The script is unwieldy, and Kinnear and Holly stuggle in every frame to make characters likable."
‑ Roger Hurlburt, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"The brief Lucy scene was funnier than anything else in the movie. If only the clip had lasted longer."
‑ Leah Rozen, People Magazine
"One ghastly limp noodle of a movie."
‑ , Film4
"After a while, I could smell the jokes coming like Grandma's two-day-old stuffed cabbage."
‑ Paul Tatara, CNN.com
"An uncommonly thoughtful and intelligent mainstream entertainment, painstaking and stylish in every aspect."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"On paper, infertility would seem a distasteful subject matter for light comedy. On screen, it only gets worse."
‑ Michael Ollove, Baltimore Sun
"The direction is unfocused and the end result is patchy."
‑ Lorien Haynes, Radio Times
"With the exception of Joan Cusack, who really needs a movie of her own -- and must stop playing best friends, wives and secretaries of main characters -- this is a waste of seven bucks."
‑ Jim Shelby, Palo Alto Weekly
