So-so sitcom-like story of estranged movie stars.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
David Nusair
Reel Film Reviews
August 11, 2008 egregiously bland piece of work that ultimately makes certain sitcoms look deep by comparison.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Lacking originality or true wit, this mildly amusing but utterly banal comedy again demonstrates that Joe Roth is not much of a director and that Billy Crystal can do only one thing as an actor--be Billy Crystal.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

Could have been more with such a great cast, but still manages to entertain.

It gets a little funnier toward the end, making up for the draggy first half . . . However, the shelf-life of this Sweetheart should be short indeed.

Slight, but at least fitfully funny.
Brent Simon
Entertainment Today
January 16, 2003
A loose-limbed, occasionally funny movie of many madly spinning teacups sunk by uninvested-in characters and niggling, wrongheaded details.

December 2, 2002
Inevitably there are some funny moments, and of course this is an endlessly watchable cast. But the movie is just too over-the-top.
| Original Score: 2/4

The film isn't just banal, it's aggressively, arrogantly banal.
Margaret A. McGurk

When it peeks behind the scenes, the movie can be very, very funny.

A timely comedy that pokes fun at all things Hollywood.

July 12, 2002
Disappointment comes from the sense that the picture started off with the promise of being something different, maybe even something scathing, but then settles for something rather routine.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

The fact that this movie contains some of the most annoying, mannered actors on film today and still remains painless is quite a feat.
Jeffrey Westhoff
Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
June 21, 2002
Its potential as a spicy spoof of Hollywood's incestuous relation with the entertainment press has been Ephroned away in favor of bland romantic comedy.

The writers turn out to be brandishing butter knives instead of scalpels. ... the movie's real surprise is the feisty, vigorous turn by Zeta-Jones, who throws off zingers with grace and style.

Quando a projeção chega ao fim, a pergunta que nos surge à mente é: 'Tá, e daí?'.

The kind of flick that gives fluff a good name.

There have been a lot of movies about how fake Hollywood is, but this is the fake Hollywood movie about how fake Hollywood is.

The premise falters along with much of the shtick.

Murphy's Movie Reviews
December 4, 2001
Joe Roth steps back into the director's chair after nearly a decade and AMERICA'S SWEETHEARTS suffers the same diffused focus that his earlier efforts. After the tightly-paced opening, the film flounders until all the major players have been introduced.
