Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[Smith] and Union bring out the best in each other, especially (and surprisingly) during the more dramatic emotional interludes."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"Stuff like that happens only in sitcoms and bad movies ..."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Above average movie for high schoolers."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"The simplistic approach to the material will no doubt please undiscriminating viewers, while those who've seen any romantic comedy will be consistently several steps ahead of the characters."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"[LL Cool J] delivers an immensely pleasing, touching performance."
‑ Susannah Gora, Premiere Magazine
"Depicts gender warfare as a kind of pillow fight."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Solid cast and the occasional chuckle notwithstanding, this movie is wildly uneven, chugging this way and that before careening off track."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Smith and Union overcome the sometimes-strained mechanics of the plot."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"The fact that there's little new in the roundabout urban updating of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew detracts not a whit from its charms, most of which come from leads LL Cool J and Gabrielle Union."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"Only LL Cool J's considerable charisma keeps this from completely sinking."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"Any romantic comedy that gives you time to think probably isn't doing its job."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Deliver us from screenplays that force likable protagonists to twist and bend their personalities to serve the contortions of a ridiculous and formulaic plot."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"While the premise of the director's follow-up ... is promising, he botches the execution at every turn, leaving his cast to drift aimlessly among half-baked plot points."
‑ Jason Anderson, eye WEEKLY
"For the most part, Deliver Us From Eva is a pretty enjoyable, if predictable, romantic comedy."
‑ Derek Tse, Jam! Movies
"A wheelbarrow full of laughs with smart characters played well by a brilliant cast."
‑ Diana Saenger, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
