David Ansen

By the tepid ending, the movie appears to have been sedated.

AV Club

If it lost every bad idea, miscast actor, wasted performance, and botched scene, nothing would be left but the end credits.

A minor comeback for Nora Ephron...Ferrell and Kidman make the most of the formulaic plot...

It's not a terrible movie. It could have been much better though.

It's a sad day indeed when Michael Caine appears in the same film as Will Ferrell. Incompetent writing, mismatched cast and absurd dialogue make this film… More
