Hopefully, Rob Reiner just suffered a case of writer's block/director's block like his character Alex Sheldon with Alex & Emma.

The actors make this fun if you can overlook the ludicrous view of Jeremy Leven's screenplay concerning how novels are written and what publishers generally pay for them.

About as funny as root canal work and as romantic as a rainy fortnight in Wrexham. Rob Reiner should make a phone call to Christopher Guest a priority.

Uninspired -- neither romantic nor comic.

"Alex & Emma" has a light tone of modernized '20s inflected comedy that Woody Allen would love to still be able to capture in his movies.

No matter how hard Alex and Emma tries, it's still the same package but with new wrapping.

What might have looked like a good idea on paper goes seriously awry in the screen treatment of this clunker from writer Jeremy Leven and director Rob Reiner.

A miserable failure on every count.

What is unusual about the film is that we see both the real life of the characters, and scenes from the hero's novel.

Delves into ... all the odious cliches of the romantic comedy genre, but Reiner justifies it by laughing at the ridiculousness of his own story.

Wilson is inert and lethargic... Instead of adding some comic energy and vitality to the proceedings, he seems to be sleepwalking through them.

...sweet without being romantic, cute without being funny.

Mesmo escrito sem maiores cuidados ou reflexes (assim como o livro de seu protagonista), o longa ingnuo (no sentido positivo da palavra) o bastante para divertir por 90 minutos.

The tepid lead characters, housed by actors who don't even share any chemistry, finally have nowhere to go in a film as flat as its interior dime-store novel.

Luke Wilson in another variation of "Pete."

With its awkward blend of postmodern literary debate and formulaic romantic comedy, Alex and Emma has the unfortunate distinction of being too intellectual for stupid people and too stupid for intellectual people.

Say, since Alex and Emma is supposed to be all about people of letters and the creative process, maybe somebody interested knows. Is lame-o all one word or hyphenated?
