It's like watching the dreckiest of teen puppy courtships trying to pass itself off as 'Annie Hall.

Both Julia Stiles and Freddie Prinze Jr. deserve better.

It's all reasonably pleasant to watch, but Isacsson doesn't seem to know what to do with the story once Al and Imogen fall in love.

[A] relentlessly adolescent romantic comedy.

Al (Prinze) and Imogen (Stiles) are 19-year-olds tackling New York college life. The course of their relationship is charted in numbing detail and interspersed with the antics of their quirky friends.

It's hard to determine exactly where I gave up on Down to You, but I'm pretty sure it was right after the opening credits.

[Director Kris Isacsson] tries to bring a little enterprise to the inevitable scenes of bickering and moody silence, but by now the vitalising tactics seem out of place.

Julia Stiles is fetching, but no surprises rain on the limpid parade of familiar post-adolescent love.

a mostly bitter, sometimes downright grim fairy tale in which Cinderella becomes a stoner and Prince Charming winds up getting his stomach pumped.

When the lovers finally do find a reason to fight, the film takes a turn into hand-wringing melodrama from which it never recovers.

Belongs to that other kind of American teen comedy... movies of crushes and wagers and sex jokes, with patchwork plots and a standby army of eccentric comic sidekicks.

The script, which simply doesn't work at all, and reduces the characters to lumpen, uninteresting blobs, despite the handsome cast.

A disappointment.

Aimless and weird- like looking at a beautiful two dimensional picture postcard - but from the edge.

Cinta con severas deficiencias y falta de ingredientes, siendo el principal de ellos la falta de corazón

The only way to stop the cinematic juggernaut known as the teen romantic comedy is for the target audience to come to its senses and stop supporting the darn things.

Listless and sporadic.

There's little chemistry between co-stars Freddie Prinze Jr. and Julia Stiles.
