Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"More an exercise in how to lose an audience in 10 minutes."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"This tortured premise to get them together and the things they go through, every minute of it just lies flat on the screen."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Along with a terrible ending, there's also a numerous range of plot inconsistencies that insult the audiences intelligence."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"A modest but bubbly comedy of manners. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"[McConaughey] and Hudson make the premise, even in its shakier moments, vibrate with a sense of fun."
‑ Lori Hoffman, Atlantic City Weekly
"Both lovers are duplicitous creeps -- in a perverse way they're made for each other."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Isn't as bad as it looks."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"The biggest problem I had with this film was the set-up and premise. It works on paper, but most of the movie is spent with the characters being simply awful."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"...despite reservations about the goofy plot and the cocky characters, the movie proceeds pleasantly enough."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"It's hard to believe that this drivel was based on a book... but Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson make it somewhat tolerable at least."
‑ David Foucher, EDGE Boston
"When a chick flick goes wrong -- and this one hits a dead end in hell -- it's a wipeout."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Resorts to the kinds of cliches that were so yesterday two weeks ago."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Battle of the sexes romcom with mature content."
‑ Common Sense Media Editors, Common Sense Media
"Has just enough substance beneath the surface throw the romantic comedy some much needed freshness."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Apollo Guide
"Kate Hudson's impressive comic flair almost saves this implausible romantic comedy."
‑ Betty Jo Tucker, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
