Burns manages to take on a laundry list of touchy issues in a relatively frank, unflinching manner. His characters retain their dignity and integrity without false dramatic redemption. It's a true adult saga.

Globe and Mail

Edward Burns returns to the themes of family and love that he examined in The Brothers McMullen.

She's The One is carefully observed, well-made, enjoyable, thought-provoking and even funny.

Rolling Stone

Sadly, the 28-year-old Irish auteur from New York lost his footing while stepping up the Hollywood food chain. Slickness set in.

She's the One isn't slick, smooth or particularly good, and it offers only a perfunctory exploration of the human heart.

Burns emphatically avoids sophomore slump with an inviting, ruefully funny film that lives up to his initial promise.

Emanuel Levy

A disappointing second feature from Ed Burns, the director of The Brothers McMullen.

The films of Edward Burns are very earnest, romantic, and they try to encapsulate the lives of New Yorkers in the mid-nineties. There's definitely a lot to… More

A funny movie. I liked it better than Brothers McMullen.
