Chasing Liberty Reviews

January 17, 2004
Forgettable fluff but it left me in an unaccountably bad mood, mainly because it's a step back for Mandy Moore.
January 13, 2004
Moore's lip-glossed petulance never catches fire with Goode's canned drollery.
January 11, 2004
It's one TV-movie romp that Kristy McNichol never got around to starring in.

Chasing Liberty will probably win over as many fuddy-duddy fathers as fillies with its mixture of sweetness tempered with genial cynicism.
January 9, 2004
An endless, virtually laugh-free pastiche of Aaron Sorkin by way of Aaron Spelling.
January 9, 2004
Chasing Liberty is strictly vanilla-flavoured, status quo entertainment.

A fluffy romance vehicle that does manage a few charms.

It's all quite engaging.

It defines blah.

Chasing Liberty chases laughs and charm for most of its 100 minutes. It loses both races, but it has its moments, an engaging cast and a lot of scenery of the great cities of Europe.

January 9, 2004
A feather-light, doggedly formulaic romantic comedy that's almost instantly forgettable despite the sunny presence of teen queen Mandy Moore.

Chasing Liberty is a comedy with no sense of fun, a romance with no passion.

The film does provide some nice shots of Venice and offers one solid reason to display a little patriotic fervor: We do have the freedom to avoid such rote, shallow dullness.

January 9, 2004
Chasing Liberty is fine (if empty) fun, and much credit for that should go to feisty Moore.

January 9, 2004
Chasing Liberty is a many-unsplendoured thing, but the one thing it isn't is a movie.

January 9, 2004
One of those efficiently made formula films that keeps movie houses open during the early part of the year.

No more than a series of postcard backdrops.

January 9, 2004
I'm not even sure it deserves to be called a movie. It's more a package built from Moore's smile, adolescent ideas about romance and plenty of picture-postcard photography.

[A] happy trip.

January 9, 2004
Chasing Liberty is surprisingly good in areas where it doesn't need to be good at all, and pretty awful in areas where it has to succeed.

January 9, 2004
Not a pleasant way to spend an hour and 45 minutes.

No, it's not the Jenna Bush story...just another mediocre romantic comedy for the teen set.
January 8, 2004
An innocuous, occasionally cute movie made watchable by the appealing Mandy Moore and hunky Matthew Good.

January 8, 2004
Mandy Moore stars in a romantic comedy that stumbles trying to stay in the footfalls left before it by Roman Holiday and It Happened One Night.

While Chasing Liberty is easy to take, its slackness is wearying.

Familiarity doesn't always breed contempt. In the case of Chasing Liberty, it breeds affection.

January 8, 2004
Like the recent Freaky Friday, pic also manages to maintain an appealingly even-keel temperament, sympathizing with the frustrations of both parents and children.
January 8, 2004
The picture is filled with Mandy Moore Moments -- approximations of recognizable human emotions, without the complicating necessity of actual feeling.

January 8, 2004
Chasing Liberty boasts exceedingly high levels of improbability and an embarrassment of continuity and character shortfalls, but still has a certain bubbleheaded charm.

The best that you can say about this predictably facile production is that it's harmless, even if it requires the dismissal of acres of reality before digestion can ensue.

It's pure formula, but it would take a true sourpuss to sneer at it.

January 8, 2004
A likable, light-as-air road comedy.

January 8, 2004
Though potentially drowse-inducing for grown-ups, this is a teen girl's dream romp through pretty postcard settings and pretty, passionate first love.

January 8, 2004
Moore is an actress of limited range whose solemnity and strength of character are her greatest assets, so it's distressing that first-time screenwriters Derek Guiley and David Schneiderman present Anna as a whiny damsel in distress.
January 8, 2004
An American girl's own Roman Holiday, with pop star Moore as Audrey Hepburn, sort of, with lip gloss, and British stage actor Goode as Gregory Peck, sort of, with a backpack!

A fairly standard-issue teen romantic comedy.

January 5, 2004
Chases romance and comedy across Europe for nearly two hours without ever quite catching either.
