Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The journey's the thing, and nearly every kilometer of it holds adventure, charm and laughter."
‑ Vic Vogler, Denver Post
"A small but charming romance."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Bleibtreu's almost too-innocent shy guy works, and his wider familiarity will help sell the adventure, but it's his co-star who gives us the emotional mileage of the drive."
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
"Explodes with hope and good will, paying tribute to Georges Méličs and the persistence of cinematic magic along the way."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"If you're the sort who used to enjoy romantic comedies before they became doddering and formulaic chick flicks, take some steps and search this one out."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"[A] sweet little crowd-pleaser."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Feels surprisingly fresh."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"None of this is the least bit believable, but all is told with a light touch and good humor and the characters are quirky enough that you can't help enjoying the ride."
‑ Jean Lowerison, San Diego Metropolitan
"While it's true that this 2000 romantic comedy is basically a Teutonic riff on the 1985 John Cusack comedy The Sure Thing, In July still has just enough twists and turns and is just light enough on its feet to stand on its own."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"If you need to get away and all you have is nine bucks and two hours, you know where to go."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Instead of avoiding the genre's conventions, the effervescent German film revels in them, resulting in a picture so infectious it almost seems original."
‑ Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle
"Who would have thought a German comedy could be light, charming and devoid of intellectual snobbery?"
‑ Marta Barber, Miami Herald
"We've been to this place many times before, folks: An overly fastidious, brainy male gets led through a series of zany adventures by a free-spirited female, and the moral of the story is to not live life so cautiously."
‑ Kevin John Bozelka, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"[It has] such engaging characters [that] if Akin wasn't working overtime trying to get these kids together, viewers might get the urge to play matchmaker themselves."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"It never ceases to amaze me how much mileage there is left in the road trip and romantic comedy genres when they're blessed with a little creativity."
‑ Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWire
