  • There are worse movies, but most restrain themselves to only one scene of Daniel Stern learning to salsa.

  • Despite the occasional detour into mawkishness, "A Previous Engagement" nicely balances unutterable truths about marriage and love with the comedy that is human interaction and the unending drama that is man and women, repulsion and attraction.

    May 12, 2008
  • This is a romantic comedy where the romance is too fraught with implications for a comedy, and the treatment of character is too flippant for a romance.

  • While this slow-starting update of Private Lives has plenty of laughs, the incredibly expressive Stevenson turns Julia's romantic dilemma into something genuinely moving. She makes A Previous Engagement something special.

  • Director Joan Carr-Wiggin intends to strike a blow for frustrated wives and mothers everywhere, but her unimaginative mixture of obvious farce and feeble midlife crisis harangues gives everything the whiff of interminable theater.
