Norton quickly finds the right note of relaxed sweetness, gentle humor, and swooningly earnest romance.

A romantic triangle dating movie as confected, and nearly as wholesome, as a '50s Universal bedroom farce, but lacking the confidence and zest.

A slight and uneven but very charming romantic comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

One Guy's Opinion
December 6, 2005
Well-meaning and decently put together, and it has occasional moments of charm...[but] more than a trifle stale.
Full Review | Original Score: C

The ending gets a little too cute, and isn't true to Anna's independent nature. Oh well, to forgive is divine.

Epic dramas can be two hours or more. For light comedy, brevity is better. What could have been a great comedy is just a good one.

The script administers a relentless string of laughs, most of them genuinely funny.

It's a unique blend of charisma, wisdom, and emotion, rendered in a most appealing package.

There is genuine chemistry among this trio that is fun to watch, and the script will keep you giggling.
Margaret A. McGurk

October 15, 2002
The movie's biggest surprise is the fine balance it strikes in navigating the tricky passage between offensive and funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Entertainment Today
September 12, 2002
A charmingly sloppy affair [full of] banter and the free-wheeling spirit of old Hollywood romances... a sun-drenched cinematic field trip.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
Kevin N. Laforest
Montreal Film Journal
September 10, 2002
Smart, funny and touching, and there is enjoyable chemistry between the three leads.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Unevenly paced, wildly unfunny and patently boring, Keeping the Faith is a waste of talent and time.
Full Review | Original Score: D

An astute directorial debut for actor Edward Norton.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews
August 2, 2002
A contrived script and lackluster performances are the worst sins of this uninspired comedy.
Jeffrey Westhoff
Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
June 15, 2002
A worst-case scenario of what happens when an actor turns director. Norton loves his fellow actors so much he cannot bear to reduce their scenes. So stuff that shouldn't make the cut of even the special edition DVD stays in the film.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
