Consensus: Though Jackman charms, Kate and Leopold is bland and predictable, and the time travel scenario lacks inner logic.

Lael Loewenstein

A time-travel romantic comedy whose best elements -- Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman -- overcome distracting plot holes, loose threads and assorted contrivances to make for a mostly charming and diverting tale.

Desson Thomson
Washington Post

Clocking her umpteenth role as a romantic comedy character in a forgettable mainstream scenario, [Ryan] seems to have lost all allure.

Matt Brunson
Creative Loafing

It's rare to come across a time travel tale as listless as this one.

Ironically, what jeopardises the transaction is Ryan.

Carla Meyer
San Francisco Chronicle

It's as if the actress agreed to take another America's-sweetheart role but her spirit didn't.

Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

Some nice moments but overall not a total success.

Stephanie Zacharek

The problem with Kate & Leopold is that although this is supposed to be a romantic comedy, the best scenes are the ones in which there's no Ryan.

Tom Long
Detroit News

The culture clashes you expect follow, but what isn't expected is how marvelous Jackman is in the role.

Joe Lozito
Big Picture Big Sound

Surprisingly effective romantic comedy with Hugh Jackman at his most charming and Meg Ryan proving yet again why she has become the watermark against which all other female romantic leads are compared.

Complete and utter crap honestly.

for a rom-com/sci-fi, pretty lame.

This movie is all kinds of weird, but I love it for that reason. Time travel and love stories have never been so eloquently put together like this. Hugh Jackman… More

Cutesy story for those who have paid their dues. The time travel aspect has so many possibilities, but this is only about Kate & Leopold.
