Nell Minow

Disappointing would-be romantic comedy with innuendo.

Not so much a movie than just another tool in the entertainment-world-domination plot concocted by the burgeoning, big-butt-blessed multimedia phenomenon nicknamed J. Lo.

The script recycles every cliché you could possibly imagine (and then some).

The Wedding Planner is a bit of fluff, but fluff can be entertaining taken in light doses.

Its manner is as light as wedding cake frosting and its lead performances are as poised as the bride and groom at the top of the cake.

Although Lopez projects her usual charisma here, McConaughey seems as out of place as Will Rogers playing Rhett Butler.

One of the more confused romantic comedies.

when J-Lo tries to be J-Ro (as in Julia Roberts), the results are no-go. Obnoxious and unfunny from start to finish, "Planner" is about as tender and comforting as a fairy tale shouted through a bullhorn.

It's a modestly successful romantic comedy, much like those old-fashioned fluff films of yesterday.

May be one of the most cheerfully unamusing movies in a long time.

Su complaciente y sentimentaloide final termina por fastidiar una historia que de por sí ya tenía problemas.

An old-fashioned romantic comedy about a career woman who has to choose whether or not to follow her heart.

This is exactly the kind of movie that thinks it's funny for someone to be demolished by a speeding dumpster.

A commonplace little offering, low on charm, but trudging ahead anyway, with nary a laugh.

... so short of substance, so lacking in vigour and so forgettable that it's just not possible to work up a good hatred.

Suffers particularly in inevitable comparison with My Best Friend's Wedding.

McConaughey is insufferably smug as always, while the bewilderingly miscast Diva appears bored and impatient.

Occasionally so inept and embarrassing that it's almost physically painful to sit through.

It runs of romance and it runs out of laughs.
