Gwen frequently visits a restaurant designed by Nick, but she never

With its clotted script, art direction that's all splash and no style, and dialogue that's too nakedly calculated to facilitate identification), this tedious and confused movie points several characters in obvious directions.

A tired piece of romantic cornball fare that harks back to a bygone era, the film is a badly conceived, poorly executed fairy tale guaranteed to make audiences squirm in their seats.

Tripplehorn and McDermott are likable enough in their roles, but Holzman's precious, overwritten script gives them few genuinely honest moments.

Here is the most tiresome and affected movie in many a moon, a 114-minute demonstration of the Idiot Plot, in which everything could be solved with a few well-chosen words that are never spoken.

A fragmentary and amateurish fairy tale.

Tripplehorn and McDermott don't look as if they belong together and aren't strong enough actors to overcome their physical incompatibility. So there's no sense of urgency about them getting together.

Bad romantic comedies with sappy characters aren't always without merit, since we cynics can at least use them to further our conviction that love isn't worth the trouble. But this bad romantic comedy is merely bad.

Graceless star Tripplehorn -- who's called upon to execute a painful series of pratfalls in a high-tech restaurant -- is not a natural comedian, and overall the movie is awkward and leaden.

The film's real irony is that Gwen and Nick are so annoying that they deserve each other.

This is a fluffy, delightful romantic comedy in the same vein as Sleepless in Seattle.

The fatal flaw comes with the casting of the romantic leads, and for once the problem isn't that they don't belong together. You're just not likely to care one way or the other.

It is so poorly executed that if you didn't know going in that these two were supposed to meet, you'd never figure out what the movie is about.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source: SPLICEDWire

Even if they never met, nothing about this movie would be different except the last two or three minutes. Not exactly a ringing example of great writing or involving direction.

pure plastic, flat and transparent. All involved were all too obviously aiming for another ``Sleepless In Seattle,'' but what they've produced is a cinematic siesta.

A big waste of time.

Like most episodic tales, some episodes are better than others; but even the good ones aren't as fully developed as they might be.

With dialog like this why did the producers go forward with this project? The movie needs a rewrite and a new director.

This film is as messy as its lead character Gwen's (Tripplehorn) personal life.
