Happy Accidents has enough quirkiness and charm to rise above the more formulaic entries in the romantic comedy genre.

Happy Accidents looks drab and doesn't take very good advantage of its New York locations, but the neurotic intensity and emotional honesty of its two leads more than make up for it.
The story isn't perfectly proportioned ... but it gets quirkier at the points where most romantic comedies go limp.
For a high-flown fantasy, it's surprisingly down-to-Earth.
The actors have enough appeal to keep it moving over the speed bumps.
The charm of Happy Accidents is that, like Ruby, we half-believe Sam Deed.
The low-budget Happy Accidents may be just the tonic for those in the mood for something quirky and low-key.
Tangy romantic comedy plays sly games.
Vincent D'Onofrio . . . makes the stranger-in-a-strange-land thing irresistible.
Once again, director Brad Anderson (of SESSION 9 and NEXT STOP WONDERLAND) has earned the title "maker of chick-flicks that guys can tolerate
A boxed-in [but] entertaining diversion... a small-scale surrealist love story anchored by two fully committed, highly watchable actors.
Starts off really well, progresses at an enjoyable pace, and falters a little about 2/3 of the way through.
It's nothing like the sappy, crappy rom-coms we're used to seeing.
This was recently on Entertainment Weekly's 50 Best Movies You've Never Seen list, and it certainly is awesome despite its kooky concept of whether Ruby's new lover is a potentially dangerous paranoid-delusional or if he's actually a time traveler from 2470. What I really enjoyed is that I couldn't figure it out either. Sam's backstory and mission are convincingly explained away by some futuristic developments, but everything the shrink says about temporal lobe epilepsy seems valid as well. Vincent D'Onofrio is just sweet enough and just lazy-faced-crazy enough to lend a slight disturbance to this otherwise light romance.
This was a pretty good movie. Solid performances from the cast and the hint of mystery make the movie intriguing to watch, if anything else. It's not mind-blowing by any means and it lacks something, and I'm not sure what it would've been, that might have made the movie better. But, again, it's a solid movie. Nothing more, nothing less.
It Like like K-PAX, but with Tomei and D'Onofrio relationship as the centerpiece. Quirky and Romantic, it really doesn't reach mind bending for me. The tension of the story is held squarely "Is D'Onofrio" sane or a time traveler. There is a quirky chemestry that works, D'Onofrio is smitten with Tormei and Tormei is in love with his dedication to her (after a life full of failed romances).
Slow, but worth sticking with. Very original idea for a romantic movie. Wasn't sure I liked it to start with, but it did end up being worth a watch.
