There's little fun in being asked to identify with yet another female character who spends her running time being shamed like a dog who soiled the rug.

Brian Orndorf

The film is hinged on unapologetic formula, looking to enchant the viewer through the act of repetition, but the writing isn't smart enough to wipe the dust off the plot.

Sadly, as Thurman dithers between her two suitors - one a fiery free spirit, the other as wet as an otter's pocket - her decisions become ever more baffling. Even her sparky performance fails to fire the rather soggy finale.

Sweet, teen-friendly rom-com borders on the cliched.

Independent (UK)

A plot of insufferable silliness contrives to keep the lovers on tenterhooks and the audience in a permanent cringe, none of it helped by Thurman's thoroughly phony performance.

Sub-lousy hackneyed crapola all the way, a complete disaster, one of the year's worst movies.

London Evening Standard

Words almost fail me after watching this terrible romantic comedy from Griffin Dunne which is perilously described as a "sort of Carole Lombard screwball comedy". Would that it were.

The Sun (UK)

This ludicrous effort is more catastrophe than accident.

Another one under the category of okay to have on in the background. Nothing more. Possibly a little worse than the average rom com.

This romantic comedy is based on a rather fresh, even if unrealistic idea: taking revenge on the radio show host who ruined your marriage by making her your… More

A badly produced, horribly clichd, sadly dreary romantic comedy starring Uma Thurman in another role that feels oh so awkward on the supernova, and hunks Colin… More

There is no other way to describe this movie other than cute. There's a little hiccup in Emma's plan to marry Richard. Turns out she's already… More
