Insubstantial and oversweet, it still refreshes as a midsummer brain cooler.

Barbara Shulgasser

Tired '90s romcom filled with deception, sexual innuendo.

[Aniston] at her best can recall young Barbra Streisand in her What's Up, Doc? days.

San Francisco Chronicle

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times

It's a shame the plot is so contrived, because parts of this movie are really pretty good.

Sure, the movie follows a basic romantic comedy formula, but it has a freshness about it, mainly because Aniston and Mohr make a sweet match.
