A bland studio comedy with some genuinely terrific bits.
November 8, 2019
Glitz, glamour, comedy and Clooney and [
Catherine] Zeta-Jones. Undeniably the funniest and most romantically funny comedy of the year.

These stars not only light up the screen, they generate enough electricity to light up Times Square. Movies just don't get better.
December 24, 2010
Screwball comedy for older teens and adults.
October 13, 2009
Here's an anomaly: a comedy about smart people.
May 6, 2008
A competent bit of work from which striking originality and idiosyncrasy have mostly been pruned away.
November 7, 2007
The Coens do an efficient job of stamping their signature grotesquerie on sumptuous Beverly Hills and Las Vegas settings and ladling on gallows humor and malice, sometimes with the verve of early Robert Zemeckis.

This is the Coens dabbling in the mainstream, and bending it to their will.
December 30, 2006
The Coensâ(TM) first mainstream romantic comedy is a superb hijacking of an ailing art form -- short, sharp and frequently laugh-out-loud hilarious.

As Miles, Clooney doesn't make any direct emotional appeal to the audience and yet his high style is so smashingly effective that Miles stands open to us: macher, lover, patsy.
February 9, 2006
Inventive and hilarious.
December 6, 2005
Destined to rank among the Coens' least memorable achievements.
December 6, 2005
A great movie.

A fun romp, thanks largely to the deft work of its two leads.
December 16, 2004
[Ce film] est tout ce que l'on ne veut pas voir les Coen faire dans leur futur, mais aussi le genre de comédie romantique que l'on souhaiterait voir plus souvent.
December 6, 2004
The script is whip-smart. The Coens come closer to the zaniness of their greatest comedy, Raising Arizona, then they have in all of their movies since then.
October 7, 2004
Despite the inconsistent script and low tone, this has many funny moments. If you can forget the negative view it takes of mankind, itâ(TM)s entertaining because of the performances of Clooney, Zeta Jones, and the rest of the cast.
September 20, 2004
The Coens ... have taken a typically trite target for ridicule and splayed it out for an attack from outer space, where Coen brothers scripts tend to originate.
