Critic Reviews

Consensus: Famke Janssen's charm fails to rescue the movie from a dull screenplay.
  • Love & Sex hasn't a strong, distinctive style, but what sets it a cut above many similar films is that for all its surface humor it has substance and emotional depth. More...
  • It's slick, polished to perfection, derivative and stripped of any of the real quirks or idiosyncrasies that make a romantic comedy fly. More...
  • It's tough to watch immediately likable actors endure such a mercilessly dull screenplay. More...
  • This jovial and knowing aperitif of a movie is a charming example of what has come to be known as the date movie. More...
  • Marred by some soppy sections, casting that undermines the story's believability and a kind of self-consciousness that makes it hard to really care about the characters. More...
  • Love & Sex is nothing but pain and suffering. More...
  • As a date movie, it's hard to find a better selection. More...
  • Janssen sparkles serenely. More...
  • Janssen and Favreau provide enjoyably consoling company for those still dating their way through life. More...
  • This one tastes like a sour apple I had on a blind date many eons ago. More...
