Wonderfully written.

Like the salsa music that provides the musical backdrop, this pleasantly low-key rom-com proves to be smoothly seductive.

Another example of the unfortunate trend toward sentimentality in British films.

The first contemporary romantic comedy I've seen in years that feels as if it's made by a real human being for other real human beings.

One can't fend off the feeling that we've been here before, and with some regularity.

Some of this is funny, most of it just fills space, and the best dancing is done by obvious professionals, not the actors.

Except for Jimmy ... these are not very interesting folks and, at first, it's hard to keep them all straight or even care.

This amiable -- albeit predictable -- film eventually gets its groove on by mining the comedy of this offbeat ensemble.

In its own modest, genial terms, the picture succeeds.

In spite of its artlessness, you'll leave smiling and smooching your significant other.

The actors are good enough to make it all work.

It's all fun and games, basically, but a pleasing diversion for those who can wade through the thick London accents.

The screenplay is a shade smarter than that of the average romantic comedy, and there are plenty of funny lines and scenes.

This lightweight British import is harmless but unenlightening, a scruple that seems to have taken its lead from an episode of HBO's "Taxi Cab Confessions."

The best movie revolving around a dance hall since 'Shall We Dance.'
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

While Born Romantic won't win any prizes for originality, it's still a charming diversion.
