Movie Info

In modern-day London, three men and three women fall in and out of love and back again, to the Greek-chorus accompaniment of two cab drivers (Ian Hart and John Thomson), who engage in an ongoing conversation about sex. In one pairing, Eleanor (Olivia Williams), a sophisticated and slightly anal art restorer, is pitted against Frankie (Craig Ferguson), a smartly dressed divorcee who still shares a flat with his bitter ex-wife. The two meet one night at a salsa club, and a caustic attraction soon

Is whimsicality the last refuge of the mediocre?

Only sporadically entertaining.

The first contemporary romantic comedy I've seen in years that feels as if it's made by a real human being for other real human beings.

One can't fend off the feeling that we've been here before, and with some regularity.

Except for Jimmy ... these are not very interesting folks and, at first, it's hard to keep them all straight or even care.

In its own modest, genial terms, the picture succeeds.

... a rare romantic comedy that gets both the romance and the comedy right.

Wonderfully written.

Like the salsa music that provides the musical backdrop, this pleasantly low-key rom-com proves to be smoothly seductive.

Another example of the unfortunate trend toward sentimentality in British films.

Kane simply piles quirks ... on top of clichés.

Some of this is funny, most of it just fills space, and the best dancing is done by obvious professionals, not the actors.

September 28, 2001
Los Angeles Daily News

This amiable -- albeit predictable -- film eventually gets its groove on by mining the comedy of this offbeat ensemble.

In spite of its artlessness, you'll leave smiling and smooching your significant other.

It's all fun and games, basically, but a pleasing diversion for those who can wade through the thick London accents.

This lightweight British import is harmless but unenlightening, a scruple that seems to have taken its lead from an episode of HBO's "Taxi Cab Confessions."

The best movie revolving around a dance hall since 'Shall We Dance.'

While Born Romantic won't win any prizes for originality, it's still a charming diversion.
