For a Cinderella story, it's sorely without magic.

Washington Post
Top Critic

The brazen sentimentality at work here -- while effective in the context of what some might call "a chick flick"-- doesn't give the material much weight.

Top Critic

Lake is a rather chilly and distinctly unpersuasive presence.

Time Out
Top Critic

This film mistakes action for energy, ridiculous circumstances for comedy, and a mismatched male/female pairing for romance.

Full Review… | January 1, 2000
Top Critic

A watered-down star vehicle for chat queen Ricki Lake, the comedy lite has been flicked on none too delicately by director Richard Benjamin.

Top Critic

This is more of a movie to see on video, on an empty night when you need something to hurl at the gloom.

The result is indigestible.

You'll be saying 'No, Ricki!' instead of 'Go Ricki!'

Full Review… | September 14, 2005

Cute and relatively inoffensive. At times, even funny.

September 17, 2004

Completely artificial and charmless

June 5, 2003
Kalamazoo Gazette

An average Hollywood romantic comedy.

Full Review… | April 24, 2003

A waste of Fraser and MacLaine, utter failure of tone.

April 4, 2003
Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies

It would take a far defter comedic hand to successfully transform Woolrich's story from bleak and horrifying to warm and fuzzy.

Benjamin should be ashamed of making such a dog.

Full Review… | March 2, 2002
Apollo Guide

An occasionally funny mistaken identity movie in very poor taste.

Full Review… | January 1, 2000

Beware the hideous musical number, in which MacLaine and Lake attempt to sing "The Sunny Side of the Street".

Full Review… | January 1, 2000

Predictability is its middle name.

Internet Reviews

An anxious-to-please romantic comedy about mistaken identity that sounds vaguely familiar.

Audience Reviews for Mrs. Winterbourne


Absolutely charming romance. Brendan Fraser, for once, does not deliver an absurd performance. An Shiley MacLaine is wonderful.

Christian C

Super Reviewer

Good heart-warming comedy as Ricki Lake looks so beautiful that she lost her own weight since Cry-Baby.

Dean McKenna

Super Reviewer


I really love this film. I dunno why. I think it's because Ricki Lake seems like someone you may actually meet. Cute story..and Shirley MacLaine owns it.

Super Reviewer


this was an okay semi comic take on the old story "I Married a Shadow" but better to wait and catch "No Man of Her Own" with Barbara Stanwyck a far superior film with much better acting.
