Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A desperately unfunny mix of tepid showbiz satire and formulaic romantic comedy."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"As an older woman who has built her career on a keen understanding of youth culture, she [Director Amy Heckerling] has a lot to say about Rosie's small world."
‑ Holly Grigg-Spall, Film4
"It's smart and warm, and if Heckerling loses her grip a few times, it's only because she's squeezing so hard."
‑ Jesse Hassenger, Filmcritic.com
"Features one of the best screen couples since Tom and Meg. "Clueless for Baby Boomers""
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"It's much better than a lot of the stuff playing in theaters."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"a rather ignominious defeat for a "comeback" performance from one of the great stars"
‑ Nathaniel Rogers, Film Experience
"...has been infused with a distinctly over-the-top sensibility that effectively drains the proceedings of anything even resembling authenticity."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"It's a pleasant diversion -- an enjoyable romantic comedy that has enough going for it to make it worth a recommendation."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Very nearly an entertaining, lightweight comedy, except for one flaw: its message is about as subtle as those in a Disney sports movie."
‑ Jette Kernion, Cinematical
"A direção de Heckerling é irregular e a montagem é assustadoramente descuidada, mas Pfeiffer e (especialmente) Rudd conferem charme suficiente para tornar o filme divertido."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
