A bleak, annoyingly quirky Gen-X recasting of the When Harry Met Sally notion that true love is based on friendship.

These writer-director-actors seem to want to make movies just so they can be cuddly in them.

I just don't find this to be an appealling or believable film.

Romantic comedy about loving the one in your heart instead of the one in your fantasies.

Eric Schaeffer is never more arrogant than with this one!

Schaeffer is the one who fells Lucy by casting himself in the male lead, then failing to convince anyone that either female lead could be attracted to his character.

If Lucy Fell has all the attributes of romantic comedy, including absolute predictability. The only surprise is that it also provides a mostly-enjoyable journey to its ultimate destination.

All coy grins and daffy mugging, Mr. Stiller plays the role as if aspiring to become the Elliott Gould of his generation. Compared with jumping off the Brooklyn Bridge, that's a reasonable goal.

A disappointingly superficial romantic comedy. There's no chemistry between any of the characters. The acting is mediocre, with Schaeffer and Parker exhibiting no screen presence.

There is an affectation that I find particularly annoying, and that is when people choose to perform at a level below their natural intelligence.

If Lucy Fell should be a chore, and yet I kept catching myself having a good time.

If you're looking for a limp and humorless comedy, look ye no further.

Schaeffer trips up, though, when he lets his philosophies get the better of him.

Sadly, the story is nowhere as original as the details and performances.

The quality of American comedy writing really seems to be on the rise.

If Lucy Fell is funnier more often than not, and when it's not being funny it's at least being strange. I'll take strange over what most major-distributor comedies are when they're not being funny.

It's airy, fluffy and ultimately uninteresting.
