Not a frothy romantic comedy.

Common Sense Media

Naomi Watts steals the movie.

Cinema Crazed

The movie is least successful when it tips from semi-serious to too-serious.

Full Review… | September 24, 2007

Its annoying need to be witty, profound, funny, and charming at all times makes what could have been a smart comedy a tiresome exercise in pleasing its audience.

Apollo Guide

At the end when we should be thinking about love and lessons of maturity, we are left with Isabel shrugging off her latest mistake and charging headlong into who-knows-what.
