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

[Aniston] has the rare gift of getting you to root for her in the most trying of circumstances, a quality that will stand her in good stead when she progresses to better material.

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.

The characters are one-dimensional and surprisingly shallow, the film is unpleasantly predictable, and the realism factor here is You've gotta be kidding.

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

The main thing that makes it watchable are the performances of Jennifer Aniston, Jay Mohr and Kevin Bacon. The three make an interesting romantic triangle, despite numerous plot problems, such as the story is basically unbelievable.

Not quite bad enough to call rancid, and that's the best I can say for it.

The comedy side of the formula gets short shrift here, partly because the camera spends so much time lingering on Ms. Aniston's ineffable cuteness.

The script has interesting comments to make about the expectations people place on love, marriage and commitment, but it fails to follow through; its structure disintegrates just at the point when it should take off...

Glenn Gordon Caron directs this romantic comedy with a light touch that brings to the surface its breezy observations on sexual politics.

Aniston doesn't need dialogue to catch Kate's quicksilver moods. It's the sitcom lines, at the service of a contrived plot, that choke her.

Movies like this one just sort of float around for a few weeks like a thin cloud, then slowly dissipate. Most people probably won't even remember it was in theaters when it shows up on the video rack three months from now.

Aniston comes across like an imitation of a movie star instead of the real thing. She gets less attractive as the film goes on.

The results should not surprise you. It's cute, fairly amusing, overly contrived and underwhelming.

A vacuous feel-good movie that leaves you feeling nothing at all.

It's one of those uninvolving films where the good bits are great, but who cares? -- there aren't enough of them to make us forget about the dross.

With her terrific looks, her happy and vivacious demeanor and her tenacity, Aniston gives a compelling performance as a hyperactive career woman, while making Kate an incredibly likable character.

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