Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Keaton is fabulous in roles like this, where she plays the nervous, infectiously-spastic independent woman who has needs, particularly when they are written with equal parts gushy sweetness and savage wit by Nancy Meyers"
‑ Jason McKiernan,
"So-so comedy with Keaton still straining to keep up with her post-Woody Allen career."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Nice performances by Keaton and Sam Shepherd almost give this anemic comedy the energy it lacks."
‑ Dan Lybarger, Lawrence Journal-World
"With the ever-charming Keaton in the lead, the flick turns out to be as harmlessly entertaining as it is outlandishly unrealistic."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"A wonderful performance from Diane Keaton pulls the movie through."
‑ Jake Euker, F5 (Wichita, KS)
"Mildly cute chick flick with a great performance by Sam Shepherd."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
"Delightfully funny and honest"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Comedy starring Diane Keaton about a Yuppie who tries to have it all in life."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
