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.

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.

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.

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.

Sweet, likable and consistently engaging, if so insubstantial that it's always on the verge of blowing away.
