So often the bearer of gravitas and dignity, Freeman shows up with a smirk on his face and a song in his heart

This is a sharp little slice of whimsy with Freeman giving a funny, very laid-back and sometimes touching performance.

[Morgan] Freeman is clearly enjoying himself, but his charisma and heavyweight presence can't quite redeem this featherweight concoction.

The bare-boned simplicity of 10 Items or Less is more a strength than a liability.

Every potentially worthwhile or amusing moment in writer-director Brad Silberling's 10 Items or Less could be told in 10 minutes or less, with credits included.

The film is brief, thin and anecdotal. Yet at its heart is a loving look at an artist at work, and that artist is Morgan Freeman.

...Best described as an "in-betweener" -- a no-budget, often experimental project that directors and actors sneak in between real jobs.

An amiable demonstration of how two charismatic actors and a relaxed writer-director (Brad Silberling) can squeeze an enjoyable movie out of practically nothing...

It's just a little film that strives to be likable, and is less so than it might have been.

Brad Silberling's new movie has nothing to prove, and not all that much to say, but its modesty and good humor make it hard to resist.

10 Items or Less is a good-natured but failed experiment in meeting cute -- indie-movie style.

With a less camera-friendly duo, this movie could have been a real dud. Even so, it's nothing much. It does have the great virtue of being only 82 minutes long, though.

Silberling demonstrates an unerring ear for the natural, often discomfiting rhythm of two strangers tentatively forging a connection.

Ten Items or Less is not landmark cinema nor is it deeply thought-provoking, but it's smart, funny, knowledgeable about life and people, and a crowd-pleaser.

The fact that 10 Items has a 72-minute playing time before credits (containing the seemingly obligatory outtake montage) only points to how slight it really is.
