Easily engages the viewer in the same fashion as the best of the romance genre.

With its laughable dramatic sequences and goofy supporting characters, this film is hard to dismiss as entertainment: a camp treat for comics as well as Usher fans.

... pic is never too insulting to the viewer, and works up a fair amount of goodwill by the good graces of Usher's Will Smithian charisma and an extremely attractive filmmaking package ...

It's clearly conceived solely as a star vehicle for the ubiquitous Usher and his washboard abs, with plot coherence and originality coming in somewhere lower in the pecking order.

It's not exactly atrocious, but it constantly makes you wonder why those involved couldn't find something better to do.

People richer than you get paid to come up with this stuff.

The failure is with a script as ungainly as it is and an oversimplified conception of American-Italian and black cultures.

In The Mix is not just mixed up, it is muddled.

This thing is as formulaically bland as the rest of its Tinseltown kind.

This movie is for die-hard Usher fans only. And by this I mean teen-age girls, who no doubt will enjoy this.

Let it be said that as an actor, Usher would probably make a pretty good zither player.

Usher, who has a squinty charm, is forced to display an infinite polite chivalry that would have shamed Sidney Poitier.

Played mostly as a drama but utterly devoid of tension, the film mainly comes across as recycled.

[A] one-dimensional romantic comedy that ... feels like an old-fashioned vehicle picture, the kind the big movie studios used to make in the 1930's and 40's just to bring in the fans of a particular actor or actress.
