Entanglement proves there's still room for charmingly quirky romantic comedies -- even if it flirts with a number of ingredients that typically lead to cutesy disaster.

This is as surprising a romantic comedy as I have seen in some time.
For moviegoers who don't mind shutting down their rational brains in order to enjoy 85 minutes of likable escapism, Entanglement will be just the ticket. Probably.
[Jason] James' assured timing and visual knack almost mask how strained and half-baked the story is.
A so-so but charming enough story concerning the connections that bind, define and sometimes confound us.
It's difficult for a film to be charming when it's so busy being preposterous - although in the case of "Entanglement," a distinct lack of energy and tonal control are also to blame.
It's not exactly a date movie (unless a breakup is in the works) but it's a pleasant enough story, thanks to a smart script and some appealing performances.
In trying to fit itself into a linear form, "Entanglement" shares some of Ben's discomfort, occasionally raising bigger questions narratively than it has the answers for, but the ambition throughout is so admirable that you're moved by the effort.
What's really annoying about Entanglement,... but can do no better than coincidence. That's not quantum entanglement, that's flat storytelling.
Entanglement ... has more than a quantum of entertainment value, offering up gentle truths about life and happiness, as well. Good times.
Annoyingly, the idea evaporates in the third act twists and turns...it's light diversion that aspires to the glory of its quirky rom-com ancestors but misses the mark by taking itself too seriously. It's also tonally off in the approach to mental illness.
"Quirky," "cute," and "weird" may be overused adjectives, but sometimes those words fit, and sometimes those tropes do work well.
When the smoke clears and it has made its jabs at other films of its ilk, this is a charming, clever depiction of mental instability.
