Consensus: Though the supporting actors are funny, Stiller and Aniston don't make a believable couple, and the gross-out humor is gratuitous.

Time Out

Without the rom-com requisites of charm, chemistry, comedy and character, this doesn't even meet low expectations.

A movie where love means diarrhea.

Talented actors in dumb film with gross sex humor.

Like the rest of today's alleged comedies that are never funny, this one pretends to be hip, but lacks every semblance of intelligence and depends on the basest common instincts in the kindergarten I.Q. for laughs.

Cole Smithey

For a movie with a theme of living life without deferring to fear of the risks involved, the filmmakers don't take chances in breaking the mold of run-of-the-mill romantic comedies.

David Edelstein

One of those films that celebrate spontaneity and risk-taking yet are so formulaic and un-risky that they strangle their own message.

Ann Hornaday
Washington Post

Firmly ensconced among the forgettables in Stiller's career.

Jamie Russell

The script just doesn't have enough comic moments to fill its 90-minute running time.

Along Came Polly was a disappointment for me. I expected something very funny, and very well done. Unfortunately this film has minor laughs and wasted good cast… More
