Never achieves the madcap hilarity of the '40s romantic comedies it seeks to emulate, and some of the dramatic moments feel a bit forced.

Mugging to an unfunny script, Keaton and Davis are no Tracy and Hepburn, and the funereal pace doesn't help.

Ron Underwood, the director of City Slickers, once again compromises appealing actors and an entertaining premise with a needless overlay of mush.

Speechless is overplotted and underwritten. Every situation is straight out of stock, with no room for variation or originality.

The movie's a campaign disaster from the get-go, and no amount of damage control (including MGM's extensive publicity) can hide it.

Director Ron Underwood demonstrated a knack for comedy in City Slickers, but when it comes to love scenes ... Keaton and Davis might as well be stampeding cows.

The level of humor is dialed safely down to the Sitcom setting, which limits what can happen, and how much we can care about it.
