Consensus: David Duchovny and Minnie Driver provide heart-warming romance and comedy in this solid debut by Director Bonnie Hunt.

Common Sense Media

An unbelievable premise, but sweet and romantic.

Yeah, it's another romantic comedy, but more than that it's thoughtful, loving, and accurate. Think, one big hug of a film.
