Charming, explicit love story for mature teens.

It's smart, it knows its audience can join dots and it actually makes you think about - and not just laugh at - the messes that people get themselves in over four letters.

While the film strives to prove its cool, it's also built on [an] insufferably antique idea.

August 30, 2002
An airy, accented romantic comedy romp of infidelity and animal attraction [that hinges on] your personal threshold for average, of-the-moment romantic comedies.

Tres hermanas y una madre (y un hermano, y la novia...) no pueden estar equivocadas todas al mismo tiempo... o s?

The movie is upbeat, unpredictable and is a smart romantic comedy in a season of half-hearted attempts.

It seems like several articles from FHM all rolled up into one. At least just reading the articles would have been a lot more entertaining.

The ending is as predictable as it is insulting in the degree to which it disappoints.

Townsend ... makes quite an impression in the title role.

The character can only exist among silly, somewhat desperate women. This makes the willing suspension of disbelief a tad tougher for half the viewing populace.

Engaging if not exactly revelatory.

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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Stuart Townsend does an impressive balancing act in "About Adam," a sly romantic comedy set in Dublin that makes a case for the virtue of infidelity. Sort of.

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.

We've all watched enough Springer to know what happens when a fiance makes a move on the bride-to-be's sister. Those family dramas involve lawyers, if not guns and knives. Never rose petals.

If anybody still thinks Kate Hudson is getting too much mileage out of being Goldie Hawn's daughter, they'll be pleasantly surprised by the range she shows in About Adam.

While it obviously won't appeal to all viewers, the film benefits enough from some charming performances, as well as a unique enough storyline that will keep viewers wondering where it's headed, to earn a passing grade.
