Predictable romantic comedy.
| Original Score: 3/5
Can't withstand the utter pits of romantic comedy trash.
Two icons of romantic comedy team up for the first time, and the result is a fizzle.
Bullock and Grant, like the viewing audience, appear to be waiting for some memorable payoff that Lawrence fails to come close to delivering.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock basically play their patented movie selves in this overly familiar romantic comedy about corporate greed, social responsibility, personal promises and budding love.
| Original Score: 2/5
Structurally, the film's off-kilter. The start of the relationship is rushed through, while the supposedly crucial notice period feels increasingly directionless. Which leaves the comic strand - and that, by and large, delivers.
Light, fluffy, and enjoyable.
| Original Score: 3/4
Much of the reason for the film's success is down to the pairing of Grant and Bullock, and it's easy to see how the film could have been a leaden disaster in the hands of blander actors.
Hugh Grant's witty delivery of throwaway lines and Sandra Bullock's clumsy sincerity appeal to me. I hope their first on-screen pairing isn't their last.
Comédia romântica formulaica e sem graça que traz Grant e Bullock repetindo seus tipos habituais. Os clichês se amontoam e irritam.
| Original Score: 2/5
Despite Bullock's comic flair and Hugh Grant's charming turn as a bumbling billionaire, they can't carry this romantic comedy just on witty repartee.
| Original Score: 2/4
...routine, harmless diversion and little else.
| Original Score: 5/10
The spark isn't there and the soufflé doesn't rise.
So much promise, so little follow-through.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
They may not be history's most predictable pairing but Bullock and Grant turn out to be a natural fit, in an Odd Couple kind of way.
'Es la típica película romántica que se puede disfrutar si se entra a la sala sabiendo que se van a ver clichés y el típico final feliz'
Lo que falla es el elemento de "chispa"; no existe esa tensión sexual típica entre entre los dos protagonistas; y ése es un hueco irreparable.
| Original Score: 7.5/10
Viewers looking for extremely light, romantic entertainment with a guaranteed happy ending could do worse.
Featherweight romantic comedy has a few nice twists in a standard plot ... and the charisma of Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock.
Something of a disaster -- it isn't funny and, though both stars try their best, there's precious little actual story there for them to work with.
