Take away the ethnic/pregnancy angles, and we've seen this premise countless times -- all the way back to the spate of post-World War II romances about returning veterans and the mates they married in a blink.

A fun no-brainer that successfully casts a sweet romantic spell.

No laughs in this one at all. Who decided to write a movie about a club designer? Boring concept, no chemistry.

Fools rush in to watch this stupid romantic comedy.

Shows how love leads away from reason into the mysteries of the heart.

Audience Reviews for Fools Rush In

A fairly typical formulaic rom-com. While it was fairly inoffensive and I quite like Perry and Hayek, it seems really dated for a film only 13 years old now and it is terribly dull.
