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.

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.

About Adam is simply a pleasant diversion rather the paean to crazy-in-love classics it would so like to be.

Calculated, cold, and damply demeaning.

About Adam rests almost entirely on the shoulders of Stuart Townsend, who brings to the movie's duplicitous title character a winningly light touch.

There's more than enough freshness of place and keenness of observation to justify this movie's existence.
