Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Definitely, Maybe, which was written and directed by Adam Brooks, has charm and spirit."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"Is this movie the best romantic comedy of the year? Maybe not. Do you walk out with a smile on your face? Definitely."
‑ Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"More satisfying than your cookie-cutter romantic comedy but far less overwrought than a full-blown period romance, it finds a satisfying and cuddly middle ground."
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
"While clearly aimed at women, many men could find it as entertainingly endurable as did I."
‑ Tony Medley,
"Modern romance may be more realistic in Definitely, Maybe, but it's also less satisfying than the illusions that classic romantic movies create about amore."
‑ Susan Tavernetti, Palo Alto Weekly
"Tthe performances are very strong."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Definitely, Maybe isn't terrible exactly, but it's bland, and in some ways that's worse. It's a romance posing as a detective story in which the solution is obvious and not worth the fuss."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"This is straight-up young people whining about their relationships."
‑ Jordan Hoffman, UGO
"The movie has heart and humor; the two most important traits for any romantic comedy."
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
"apsogo holigoyntiano stil komple me tileoptikizoysa eikonografisi, sympyknonontas treis romenti payla ntramenti se ena hortastiko gia ta metra toy paketo"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"Everything feels derivative and nothing rings true -- it's The Way We Weren't."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"This highly uneven comedy by writer-director Adam Brooks might be easier to take if it were less infatuated with its own cuteness."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"It's sweet natured and brightly played."
‑ Xan Brooks, Guardian
"The writing is clever, the acting is good, and this is pretty much as good a chick flick as you're going to get."
‑ Eric Lurio, Entertainment Insiders
"If you're looking for a nice romantic comedy for your Valentine's Day date, look no further%u2014Definitely, Maybe is positively it."
