A desperately unfunny mix of tepid showbiz satire and formulaic romantic comedy.
It's much better than a lot of the stuff playing in theaters.
It's a pleasant diversion -- an enjoyable romantic comedy that has enough going for it to make it worth a recommendation.
As an older woman who has built her career on a keen understanding of youth culture, she [Director Amy Heckerling] has a lot to say about Rosie's small world.
a rather ignominious defeat for a "comeback" performance from one of the great stars
Very nearly an entertaining, lightweight comedy, except for one flaw: its message is about as subtle as those in a Disney sports movie.
It's smart and warm, and if Heckerling loses her grip a few times, it's only because she's squeezing so hard.
...has been infused with a distinctly over-the-top sensibility that effectively drains the proceedings of anything even resembling authenticity.
A direção de Heckerling é irregular e a montagem é assustadoramente descuidada, mas Pfeiffer e (especialmente) Rudd conferem charme suficiente para tornar o filme divertido.
Features one of the best screen couples since Tom and Meg. "Clueless for Baby Boomers"
It is a cute story - Both mother and daughter going through relationship issues. Michelle Pfeiffer is a single mom with a 13ish year old daughter. We sometimes wonder who is the adult between the two.
Should not have gone direct-to-DVD. The presence of the Mother Nature character and Tracy Ullman's portrayal is done perfectly. Everything else is messy, with great writing popping out here and there. Stacey Dash is a pleasant surprise. Girl who plays the daughter holds her own with the comic experts in the cast.
Cute and at times funny movie with Michelle Pfeiffer and Paul Rudd as a couple. Pfeiffer is a single mom of a young teen and producer of a show that Rudd's character is in. She goes through the struggles of dealing with being in a relationship with a younger man and a young daughter going through puberty at the same time. Very likable!
Enjoyed it alot. Paul Rudd is such a cutie and is very funny and Michelle Pfeiffer is as well
