Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Hope endures, but not for this movie."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"[Faris'] relationship with co-star Huang, while cordial, hardly reflects an emotional connection strong enough for him to conquer his character's post-romantic breakup stress syndrome."
‑ Dann Gire, Daily Herald (IL)
"It's curious that the only conflict mined from this bicultural relationship is strictly linguistic."
‑ Martin Tsai, Los Angeles Times
""Forget the words, follow your heart" is this film's oft-repeated Hallmark card sentiment. You may just want to forget the movie and follow the aisle to the exit."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Perhaps only an expat like American-born, Hong Kong-based director Stanley J. Orzel could create a tribute to his adopted city as loving as Lost for Words."
‑ Steve Erickson, Village Voice
"An adequate romantic drama of star-crossed lovers. Good shots of Hong Kong."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
