Film Journal International

The first half of this Sandra Bullock vehicle is so winning and observant, it's especially disappointing when the storyline begins losing air at the midway point.

At times heartwarming home-town kitsch, at other times predictable puppy-love pablum for the young and recently separated, Hope Floats... but just barely.

Film Quips Online

The plot of this tear-jerker is a little heavy-handed, and so is the directing by Forest Whitaker.
