Gives a hell of a first impression, but the deeper we delve into the screenplay, the more obvious it becomes that there's not much going on under the surface.

The script is only sporadically amusing, and the result is more pretentious than profound.

Some truths about George and Edith's underlying emotional state come out in an unconventional and interesting way, but it's not enough to make us care about the attraction that is drawing them closer.

Garcia and Farmiga, as good as they can be in the right roles, aren't doing themselves or their careers any favors with this sort of C-level effort.

None of this is particularly innovative, although Garcia and the elder Farmiga develop a nice spark and a gentle humor in their characters' stolen day together.

The actors push too hard to flesh out this whimsical, clichéd blend of campus comedy and midlife rom-com.

Even though it's a movie for grown-ups, it isn't always a grown-up movie.

Not as insightful as it desperately tries to be

Pity. A different film might have made better use of Farmiga's breezy warmth and Garcia's velvety charm.

Garcia and Farmiga have such an easy, natural chemistry that their on-screen sparkle helps mitigate the film's weaknesses. At others times, it serves to underscore what might have been. It's a feckless conundrum.

As pleasing as it is to watch these actors at work, they aren't able to elevate the lightweight script behind this classic stolen-moments romance that seems more suited to TV than the big screen.

Destined to disappoint royal family followers and romantic comedy supporters.

Often plays like a forgotten trifle from the Golden Age of Hollywood studio filmmaking, distinguished more by its competence and affable performances than by any formal or thematic potency.

Pleasant but irksome to a fault. Why should the viewer care about these characters when they don't seem to care about anyone but themselves?

What starts out mildly charming is mostly tiresome by the time they start doing bong rips in a random student's dorm room.
