Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"For a Cinderella story, it's sorely without magic."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"This film mistakes action for energy, ridiculous circumstances for comedy, and a mismatched male/female pairing for romance."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"The result is indigestible."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Completely artificial and charmless"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"It would take a far defter comedic hand to successfully transform Woolrich's story from bleak and horrifying to warm and fuzzy."
‑ Christine James, Boxoffice Magazine
"The brazen sentimentality at work here -- while effective in the context of what some might call "a chick flick"-- doesn't give the material much weight."
‑ Brian Lowry, Variety
"A watered-down star vehicle for chat queen Ricki Lake, the comedy lite has been flicked on none too delicately by director Richard Benjamin."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"You'll be saying 'No, Ricki!' instead of 'Go Ricki!'"
‑ Michael Dequina,
"An average Hollywood romantic comedy."
‑ Dragan Antulov,
"Benjamin should be ashamed of making such a dog."
‑ Jamie Gillies, Apollo Guide
"Lake is a rather chilly and distinctly unpersuasive presence."
‑ , Time Out
"This is more of a movie to see on video, on an empty night when you need something to hurl at the gloom."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Cute and relatively inoffensive. At times, even funny."
‑ Widgett Walls,
"A waste of Fraser and MacLaine, utter failure of tone."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
"An occasionally funny mistaken identity movie in very poor taste."
‑ Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWire
