Seldom have we seen such an extensive ensemble of talent in the movies yanked through the material like lambs on their way to a slaughter.

Love? Actually, no. More like disappointment, and, at times, hatred.

A long running time, too many characters and too much whimsy and corn make this romantic romp more of a slog than a soufflé.

Romantic and entertaining -- for older teens.

Bombastic audience-hooting moments aside, Curtis has written his most accomplished film, finding the energy to direct the hell out of it as well. And it's even gloriously R-rated to boot.

Despite it's naivety, this is one of the most beautiful and heart warming movies to come around in years...

Loads of fun as long as your expectations aren't overly raised by the hype, the cast and the taglines.

Transfixed by the taboos of the...British class system, Curtis seems to think that nothing could be more erotic than the subordinate who fetches tea or dusts the crockery.

For the cuddlers out there who like things a little too light and fluffy.

Disconcertingly lubricious.

This is cloying, deceitful, and more or less irresistible.

Without ever sounding a false note, this endearing ensemble holiday flick manages to be nuttier than Notting Hill, more satisfying than Bridget Jones' Diary, and even more intricate than Four Weddings and a Funeral.

Plenty of entertainment in this well acted ensemble comedy that Robert Altman could easily have put his name on.

This is an embarrassment, an overdrawn rom-com gone very wrong.

The film lives up to its hype.

Curtis has created a joyful, entertaining date movie that'll leave you with a smile on your face and an almost irresistible urge to hug somebody.

This is definitely a case of a writer-turned-director that is too in love with his own script to make hard choices about what to keep and what to cut.

Curtis has lost none of his touch, though the ending is somewhat muddled and 135 minutes is very long, even for a good romantic comedy.
