A dinner of week-old turkey legs and stale mead would be more fun than this Ren Faire-set rom-com disaster.

Cheeky and underwhelming, quickly to be filed under 'forgettable films.'

A prime contender for 2011's biggest cinematic embarrassment.

Finding a fresh setting for a comedy is difficult, but a Renaissance fair is too broad a target.

Only Ann-Margret, as the fair's reigning queen, retains her dignity.

Marshall does manage a breezy, good-natured tone toward this oft-mocked cultural phenomenon that allows for eye-rolling and smiling in equal measure.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

"Faire" is as predictable as boils on a plague victim, and its romantic complications are generic, but the script is amusing and, zounds, it's nice to see Ann-Margret in the supporting role of a RenFest monarch.

If you don't like the word 'penis' but crack up at the use of 'wang,' 'ding dong,' 'wenis' and 'wiener,' this is your movie.

We've seen this kind of thing before; it was old when Bill Murray did it in Meatballs.

Give it points on setting and a couple of the performances, but the joke-starved "All's Faire in Love" only rarely rises to the level of fair to middling.

Some name talent probably won't be putting Scott Marshall's 2009 stinker on their résumés.

Slant Magazine

A TV movie-grade romantic farce that's practically medieval in its cornball conventionality.
