Although the movie's affection for its characters is refreshing, none of them stirs our passions.

If only there were something sharp and pungent - besides Ellen DeGeneres' wisecracks - to keep you from drifting off.

An enjoyable enough way to spend an hour and a half, but doesn't end up having much to offer in the way of substance.

The Love Letter is so slight, so insipid, that a viewer can scarcely find much therein to love or hate.

Choosing not to emphasize the romantic angle, the film feels more like a pilot for a television sitcom than a movie.

It wants to revel in rapture and grand illusions and timeless dreams, yet its vision of love is overly graphed out and willed.

The film's construction is clumsy and the sentiments a little corny.

A scattershot account of unexpected, confusing romantic love that spreads like a virus!

There's no chemistry between any of the stars, and there's a puzzling lack of energy.

Lies dormant as a movie.
January 1, 2000
This is filmmaking as puff pastry: Some viewers will want to lick up every sweet little crumb and others will find it cloying and twee.
