Alex & Emma Reviews

February 8, 2012
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.

"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.

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.

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.

This romantic comedy gets off to a slow and oddly pitched start before settling into its own pleasant groove.

Alex & Emma is lighter than helium, but it's just sturdy enough to be pleasing.

Imitating that life, Alex & Emma is more artifice than art. But chemistry is the key to a romantic comedy, and this one has enough to unlock guarded hearts.

Inspired by Fyodor Dostoevsky, Rob Reiner gives us a so-so metatextual romance -- "When Sally Adapted Harry."

Alex & Emma isn't nearly as clever as Reiner's classic Misery, a very different look at a male writer and his female companion. But it's diverting fun.

While it's no When Harry Met Sally, it is a nice return to the genre by director Rob Reiner.

The movie works. Well, it does for me. And, I suspect, it will for anyone who isn't looking for Dostoevsky.

Wilson does his best work ever, and Hudson is her usual charming self.

Wilson and Hudson's chemistry is spectacular.

Saved from being mere fluff by the smooth transitions from the present to 1924 and back.
