That this movie doesn't find a way out of the morass of cliché and triviality isn't surprising, but it is disappointing.

[Garner] is moving up the likeability ladder to Sandra Bullock/Julia Roberts levels.

The mark of a good romantic comedy is whether it can make you care if the couple in the poster wind up being an item by the final reel. At the end of 'Catch and Release,' Cupid's intrigues and caprices are less involving than a typical State of the Union

I was pleasantly surprised.

It doesn't end with a mad dash through an airport, for example. But nor does it bother with thinking of anything much better.

Take heart: you may feel that it takes forever, but the movie will eventually end.

A well-acted, truthfully written film -- there's just too much of it (about 20 minutes too much).

One of those movies where the small pleasures stack up high enough to dwarf the disappointments.
February 2, 2007
The movie takes subject matter that seems depressing and infuses it with humor and warmth.

That Catch and Release doesn't amount to much is because it treads lightly on big emotions.

If grief were as easily overcome as it is in Catch and Release, Prozac sales would be in dire trouble.

At best a mildly diverting effort that wants to be more than it is.

A romantic non-comedy.
January 30, 2007
The poor man's Julia Roberts, Garner boasts a similar coltish, awkward physicality and vaguely aquatic mouth... just none of the Movie-Star charisma.
January 30, 2007
Catch and Release is another middle-of-the-road romantic dramedy, neither offensively bad nor terribly inspiring either, despite its best efforts.
