The charm of it all wins us over, and while we watch the tired old twists and turns, we smile anyway.

[Jeff Balsmeyer's] playing it safe causes this beautiful opportunity of a film to crash just when it seems destined for the stratosphere.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

In a sane world, this utterly charming, sweet little fantasy of a movie would boost Rhys Ifans to stardom.

One randomly recruited audience member directly behind me -- let's call him the Shouter -- exclaimed, 'That's tight!'

Too predictable to sustain interest.

Balsmeyer may remind you of the guy at the party who, after one too many shots, puts a lampshade on his head. It's funny for maybe a moment -- until you realize, to your horror, that he doesn't know when to stop.
| Original Score: 2/5

The easygoing humor and uplifting messages -- that it's never too late to turn your life around -- are welcome, especially in the September movie doldrums.

September 16, 2004
A sort of children's book for adults.
| Original Score: 3/5

This is a good one to catch and moves to a feel good ending.

Jeff Vice
Deseret News, Salt Lake City
September 10, 2004
Takes a good premise -- one that's based on real-life events -- and turns it into a tired and overly familiar sitcom.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Salt Lake Tribune
September 10, 2004
Delivers the uncomfortably condescending message that these eccentric salt-of-the-earth folks ... need this Sydney slacker to tell them how good-hearted they are.

As for the charm factor, I can't think of any screen couple this year with more of such an elusive quality than Ms. Otto and Mr. Ifans.

Nothing more than the same rom-com clichés you've seen a thousand times.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
Nell Minow
Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
September 5, 2004
Unlike its main character, it never quite achives lift-off, but it is a pleasant little diversion with some very sweet moments.
| Original Score: B-
David Elliott
San Diego Union-Tribune
September 3, 2004
Nicely shot, quaintly romantic, it is tuned to the Australian taste in matey malarkey.
| Original Score: 2/4
M.E. Russell
September 3, 2004
Like Danny, the movie seems up for anything, and that relaxed joie de vivre charms in the movie's second half.
| Original Score: B
Thomas Delapa
Boulder Weekly
September 3, 2004
Climbs to a magical high halfway through, then spends the rest of its time in an easy chair.
Sean Axmaker
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
September 3, 2004
It's pure romantic fantasy, almost too cute and naively innocent for its own good.
