The ending is as predictable as it is insulting in the degree to which it disappoints.

An airy, accented romantic comedy romp of infidelity and animal attraction [that hinges on] your personal threshold for average, of-the-moment romantic comedies.

It seems like several articles from FHM all rolled up into one. At least just reading the articles would have been a lot more entertaining.

Squanders its potential themes.

If writer-director Gerard Stembridge had been a little less concerned with making Adam so darned lovable and actually given the character some occasional shadings of darkness, the movie would be more palatable.

You Should Pay Nine Bucks for This If: Turning off your brain for an empty-headed sex comedy that really skimps on the comedy is how you want to throw away your dough.

We've all watched enough Springer to know what happens when a fiance makes a move on the bride-to-be's sister. Those family dramas involve lawyers, if not guns and knives. Never rose petals.

The character can only exist among silly, somewhat desperate women. This makes the willing suspension of disbelief a tad tougher for half the viewing populace.

While the film strives to prove its cool, it's also built on [an] insufferably antique idea.

The sex may be great, but you're left feeling somewhat cheated by the rest of the story.

Adam's ability to go straight to the heart of each person's desire gives it a whimsical, almost magical tone that keeps it as light as a bubble.
