A comedy with heart and substance.

The acting is as nimble as the footwork.

Chadha does a decent job directing, while Parminder Nagra does a good job acting. The movie's main problem is that it's a little more fussy than it needs to be.

Fine character work by Juliet Stevenson, Archie Panjabi, and Bollywood regular Anupam Kher makes this well worth seeing.

More rooted in small-screen sitcom than anything deeper.

Nagra and Knightley have winning personalities, but credit should also go to writer/director Chadha for getting the balance right between humour and pathos, and sporting and romantic action.

Formulaico do início ao fim, não convence nem mesmo em suas seqüências envolvendo futebol %u2013 apesar da boa dinâmica entre Nagra e Knightley.

Every generation has to discover the same clichés that were drummed into previous generations, and kids could do worse than to learn them from this film.

Chadha makes a film with something in short supply in American teen-targeted films: class.

All that fancy footwork, wow! And a mature story that manages to rise above the typical teen fare. And Freddy Prinze, Jr. isn't anywhere to be found.
