This is an ungainly movie, ill-fitting, with its elbows sticking out where the knees should be.

Life or Something Like It has its share of high points, but it misses too many opportunities.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

After taking in this brainless, by-the-book romantic comedy, you'll need a breath mint just to get the taste out of your mouth.

Angelina Jolie's romance/comedy/drama isn't terribly romantic, comedic or dramatic.

Whoever said 'blondes have more fun' may have been right, but that doesn't mean we have to PAY to watch it happen in such trivial fashion.

Herek's direction is matter-of-fact and sometimes awkward.

The movie has no suspense, no sense of how Jolie's destiny affects her and absolutely no connection to life or anything like it.

To enjoy this movie's sharp dialogue and delightful performance by Jolie and Burns, you have to gloss over the no sense ending.

Bad movies just don't come any sadder than Life or Something Like It, a shapeless, miserable mess.

Explain to me why the big studios keep making romantic comedies which are so lacking in romance and comedy.

Pseudo-spiritual nonsense...

It appears as if even the filmmakers didn't know what kind of movie they were making.

Angelina Jolie gives a mixed-bagged performance. Sometimes she is annoying, affected and just plain selfish...other times she endearing and funny
