Gere and an almost ethereally radiant Roberts have never been better than in this sometimes herky-jerky breeze, which keeps improving as it goes.

Doesn't generate enough laughs to make up for the fact that you never figure out what he (a misogynistic USA Today columnist) sees in her (a dizzy hardware-store manager).

That charming thing only works if the story is good.

There's no question the chemistry between them still works for a light romantic comedy. But an overcalculated, undernourished screenplay undermines much of the effort.

Virtually every step the Runaway narrative takes produces collisions with credulity!

Marshall is too much of a softie; he meanders around the story, milking it for both sentiment and comedy and often tripping over himself in the process.

It looks as if Julia and the horse were trying to get the hell away from the camera, and into a better movie.

A clumsy motion picture that strives so hard for the perfect romantic ending that it triggers a gag reflex along the way.

Runaway Bride is a shamelessly manipulative, slick, shallow, contrived piece of old-fashioned, pre-tested, star-driven Hollywood claptrap, and very welcome it is.

After seeing Gere and Roberts play much smarter people, it is painful to see them dumbed down here.

Roberts and Gere try gamely to look at each other as if there's a scintilla of frisson between them, but often as not they're forced to eschew the drama and go for absurd overacting.

A cheerful, cheeky, agreeable comedy made doubly palatable by two stars in perfectly balanced chemistry.
