Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This might have been tailor-made by director Pollack to ease Ford into more straightforwardly romantic territory."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"A meandering mystery - drama - romance that never hits the right groove."
‑ Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"In a perfect world, this assemblage of great talent wouldn't amount to such a colossal waste."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"It's a chick flick, and my chick fell asleep during it."
‑ John Venable, Supercala.com
"I am trying to remember what Random Hearts is about, but during the film I was transfixed by Harrison Ford's earring."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"Looks more like a case of random minds."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Pollack lingers over the details of the plane crash, and the dialogue is a series of morose retro howlers."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"A failure of a romantic drama."
‑ , Film4
"My God! What happened to Sydney Pollack?"
‑ Ron Wells, Film Threat
"Sydney Pollack directs with a risk-free style that's borderline dull."
‑ Jeanne Aufmuth, Palo Alto Weekly
"Beyond all its pointless circling around the center, Random Hearts tests audience patience by showing behavior far too long before explaining it."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"There's a vital spark missing from the core of the tepid Random Hearts."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"A kind of thriller/drama/romance that has an interesting idea and doesn't know where to go with it."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Kristin Scott Thomas's elegant femininity contrasts perfectly with Harrison Ford's bruised machismo in this mature romantic drama."
‑ Betty Jo Tucker, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"A nice showcase for Thomas's talent, and it's a slight departure for Ford, which makes it more enjoyable than watching him punch people out on an airplane."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
