Therapist Lucy Ackerman is nearing her 30th birthday. Depressed, she reminds her friend Joe of the promise they made -- if they hadn't found permanent mates by the Big 3-0 they would jump off the Brooklyn Bridge together. This off-beat romantic comedy chronicles the days leading up to the fateful moment.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A bleak, annoyingly quirky Gen-X recasting of the When Harry Met Sally notion that true love is based on friendship."
‑ Sarah Kerr, New Yorker
"There is an affectation that I find particularly annoying, and that is when people choose to perform at a level below their natural intelligence."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"These writer-director-actors seem to want to make movies just so they can be cuddly in them."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Eric Schaeffer is never more arrogant than with this one!"
‑ Michael Szymanski, Zap2it.com
"Schaeffer trips up, though, when he lets his philosophies get the better of him."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"All coy grins and daffy mugging, Mr. Stiller plays the role as if aspiring to become the Elliott Gould of his generation. Compared with jumping off the Brooklyn Bridge, that's a reasonable goal."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"It's airy, fluffy and ultimately uninteresting."
‑ Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
"I just don't find this to be an appealling or believable film."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"Schaeffer is the one who fells Lucy by casting himself in the male lead, then failing to convince anyone that either female lead could be attracted to his character."
‑ Christine James, Boxoffice Magazine
"If you're looking for a limp and humorless comedy, look ye no further."
‑ Madeleine Williams, Cinematter
"If Lucy Fell is funnier more often than not, and when it's not being funny it's at least being strange. I'll take strange over what most major-distributor comedies are when they're not being funny."
‑ Jeff Millar, Houston Chronicle
"If Lucy Fell should be a chore, and yet I kept catching myself having a good time."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"Romantic comedy about loving the one in your heart instead of the one in your fantasies."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"If Lucy Fell has all the attributes of romantic comedy, including absolute predictability. The only surprise is that it also provides a mostly-enjoyable journey to its ultimate destination."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"The quality of American comedy writing really seems to be on the rise."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
