Critic Reviews for About Adam
While the film strives to prove its cool, it's also built on [an] insufferably antique idea.
Stembridge makes the twists as pleasantly surprising as the dawning realization that you've gone from judge to accomplice.
Stembridge keeps things bustling along at a lively enough pace to deflect any introspective focus on the matchups that are never presented as relationships, only flings.
A glowing Hudson radiates high spirits, and Mr. Townsend ... makes his chameleon character seem credible.
For his part Townsend does Adam with a lightness of touch that fits in with the film's cheery view of his unscrupulousness.
Audience Reviews for About Adam
Every once and a while they let Kate Hudson be in a good movie ("Almost Famous," "Dr. T & the Women," "The Skeleton Key," "Nine," "The Killer Inside Me") and "About Adam" is certainly one of them. Unfortunately, Hudson is the very weak link in this terrific cast. Her abominable Irish accent (and subsequent singing in said accent) nearly topple the film in the first 3 minutes, but stick around, because there is plenty of fun to be bad. Stuart Townsend is sexy and sly as a man who charms his way into the private lives of three sisters and their brother. The film may be unscrupulous and naughty, but that's all apart of the whimsy. "About Adam" is a devilish Irish comedy full of deceptive surprises and wit to spare. If you are looking for a first rate romantic comedy with bite and energy, "About Adam" is your ticket.
This movie was HILARIOUS! Stuart, you ROCK!!
