This one tastes like a sour apple I had on a blind date many eons ago.

By no means a great film, but a zippy little comedy with a lively pace and a nice supply of laughs -- and occasional moments of genuine feeling.

This romantic comedy presents a sassy overview of sexual politics where men and women expect so much of each other.

A simple, pleasing romantic comedy with a sharp tongue and a soft heart.

An insufferably dull retracing of romantic comedy's steps, with none of the relationship insight or genuine humanness that can make the formula such a joyful one to follow.

The strengths of the screenplay don't translate to the screen. Well-written one-liners lie dead, killed by the lax timing. Everyone tries so hard to be ingratiating and witty that the charm curdles into smarm.

Love & Sex is nothing but pain and suffering.

Already burdened by Kate's clichéd voice-over observations, the movie eventually sinks beneath the weight of Kate and Adam's utter charmlessness, a huge liability in bickering romantic-comedy couples.

Marred by some soppy sections, casting that undermines the story's believability and a kind of self-consciousness that makes it hard to really care about the characters.

Scenes seem designed more for cuteness than believability. And never is the chemistry between Adam and Kate genuine, which is the kiss of death for a romantic comedy.

It's tough to watch immediately likable actors endure such a mercilessly dull screenplay.

It's slick, polished to perfection, derivative and stripped of any of the real quirks or idiosyncrasies that make a romantic comedy fly.

As a date movie, it's hard to find a better selection.

This jovial and knowing aperitif of a movie is a charming example of what has come to be known as the date movie.

Love & Sex is capable of making even the most cynical Gen-Xer watch with an involuntary smile.

Love & Sex hasn't a strong, distinctive style, but what sets it a cut above many similar films is that for all its surface humor it has substance and emotional depth.

Aren't Annie Hall calibre, but they are remarkably more recognizably human than what passes for most movie romantic comedy.

Like love and sex, this film is pretty hard to resist.

Refreshing depiction of today's dating game does for single women what Swingers did for single men.
