"An unbelievable premise, but sweet and romantic."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media

‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"So innocent, so naive, so sweet and sincere, that you must leave your cynicism at the door or choose another movie."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The movie suffers from a surfeit of affection."
‑ Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune

‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"Ultimately too bland and safe."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"Contrivances abound, no doubt, but the picture refuses any disingenuous pollutant access to the mix, instead leading with heartfelt, lived-in emotions, enjoying a deliciously homey mood of friendly flirtation and old-world wisdom."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Characters you can enjoy watching and will care about, places you will enjoy spending time, and a charming, hopeful look at love amid the vagaries of life."
‑ Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films Guide
"[Hunt] chooses early emotional depth to fulfill later parts of the movie--a master stroke, as it turns out."
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
