A story of self-discovery Catch and Release is ... well it's horribly, horribly dull is what it is. It's like an entire season of a mediocre primetime soap opera squeezed into a couple of hours.

...harbours a secret crush on Gray but, hey, so does everybody, since Gray has fairies and butterflies flying out of her vagina.

Catch and Release will not cause Ben Affleck any husband-envy. It's a harmless romantic comedy that will garner Garner no awards and middling success at the box office.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.0/5

Suffice it to say that when the best thing you can say about a movie is the soundtrack was decent (catch the old Lemonheads tune in the beginning), it's not worth the trip to the theater.

By the conclusion of the film, Catch and Release transformed itself from a risk-taking romantic comedy with a darkly humorous lining into a stereotypically syrupy outing...

Unappealing, inert and overlong inane romantic comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: C

Release yourself from boredom by giving it a miss.

Garner is likable, but the film is so leisurely and meandering that it never quite builds a pulse to engage the emotions the way Grant so obviously strives.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Even with Smith involved, Catch and Release isn't the sort of film a guy would generally go to see alone, but it does make for a decent date movie. She'll enjoy the romantic elements and he'll likely find it unobjectionably entertaining.

...nothing particularly noteworthy or innovative...

Can we really be expected to invest in a budding relationship between a woman and the best buddy of her dead lover?
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

The multiple story threads make it a little unfocused from a thematic standpoint, but it's a generally well-executed lark, neither too serious nor too silly for its subject matter.

At times I was entertained; other times, I just scratched my head.

The film's slight, quirky characters are driven by a soundtrack designed to tell us exactly how to feel. And perhaps that's not such a bad thing--in this case, something had to.

March 24, 2007
Disappointing film that can't decide whether it's meant to be a romantic comedy or an emotional drama and fails at both as a result.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

A ghastly sort of Nora Ephron-ish good taste pervades this romcom-tearjerker.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Juliette Lewis helps break the monotony with a sparkling turn as a ditsy skeleton in the dead fiancÚ's closet and Kevin Smith spouts a few good zingers as the slacker housemate. Sadly it's not enough to catch and keep hold of your interest.

A film with a fishing metaphor for a title should have come with sharper hooks.

Although extremely slow moving and hard to sit through, 'Catch and Release' focuses on characters who genuinely care about each other.
