Times-Picayune

More satisfying than your cookie-cutter romantic comedy but far less overwrought than a full-blown period romance, it finds a satisfying and cuddly middle ground.

The writing is clever, the acting is good, and this is pretty much as good a chick flick as you're going to get.

Palo Alto Weekly

Modern romance may be more realistic in Definitely, Maybe, but it's also less satisfying than the illusions that classic romantic movies create about amore.

For all the unnatural setup, it's amazing that the performances come off so naturally.

All of the romantic scenes work here, but anytime it switched gears and started focusing on the politics, it lost me.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

Who will our unlucky in love protagonist ultimately choose? Even if one correctly surmises, the journey is filled with quietly humorous and engaging moments.

A bittersweet bedtime story about at least three babes who broke a guy's heart during his hard knocks, early adult years, in addition to, well, Bill Clinton.

I am totally guilty. You can throw me in a court room and convict me because I am totally and completely guilty of thinking this movie was going to be the same old romantic comedy that we have been seeing for years.

We get a rare look at a long personal journey through relationships (including his relationship to politics) from the point of view of the man, and a new appreciation of the silver lining on even the saddest cloud.

[Adam] Brooks has had a sporadic career, but when he suddenly resurfaces, he usually provides zesty dialogue and intriguing characters.

Philadelphia Weekly

A terminally bland, brutally overlong tale of tedious, attractive people and their banal romantic problems.
