Silberling has shot what feels like the first home movie to get a national release; it's too cute to criticize for anything other than its fluff.

While Freeman and Vega are mildly entertaining, the story is too safe and precious to elicit anything more than a passing sense of amusement.

A Hollywood hotshot played by Morgan Freeman, befriends a supermarket cashier just so he can get familiar enough with acting like somebody poor, to get into character for his next movie, and the effort fails miserably.

This is a dazzling piece of character study, set to a breezy, charming tone.

filled with tiny moments that are instantly amusing, then immediately forgotten when the movie's over.

It's ultra low-key as only indie films can be, but there's enough charm and warmth to fill the spaces left by the 'missing' action.

This slight piece of work, written and directed by Brad ilberling, has some amusing moments and thanks to the great chemistry between Freeman and Vega is perhaps more enjoyable than it should be.

...worth discovering, and it can be discovered by each person who watches it, no matter how many reviews are read, no matter how many friends see it and recommend it. It's just that kind of movie.

Though in some ways its plot is never entirely convincing, it is, on its own limited terms, nearly perfect.

...Rachman's film makes the case that under the right circumstances anger and outrage and defiance are an art form unto themselves.

So often the bearer of gravitas and dignity, Freeman shows up with a smirk on his face and a song in his heart

10 Items or Less is a cinematic smoothie: refreshing, light, insubstantial.

Will go down as tasty as a fast-food guacamole.

As slight as it is wholly disarming.

This is a sharp little slice of whimsy with Freeman giving a funny, very laid-back and sometimes touching performance.
December 3, 2006
As modest and indie-ish as you can get with the delightfulMorgan Freeman flirting with the lovely Paz Vega.
December 2, 2006
A light-hearted and feel-good independent film about two strangers who connect in a way that surprises both of them and enriches their lives: it's one of the best films of the year.

[Morgan] Freeman is clearly enjoying himself, but his charisma and heavyweight presence can't quite redeem this featherweight concoction.

From executive producer Morgan Freeman comes a movie about how awesome it would be to have world-famous actor Morgan Freeman be your friend for a day.

It all feels like an insubstantial short that's been stretched to the breaking point.
