I enjoyed the movie quite a bit... Unfortunately, Smith cannot resist his old stand-bys.

Jersey Girl obeys the classic conventions of romantic comedy but there are ingredients in this mix that raise it a notch above average.
September 24, 2007
Mature and heartfelt, though not overly saccharine.

Affleck is at ease in this down-to-earth drama in a way that he never seems to be in his action movies, and Castro seems like a genuine child instead of like a child actor.

Smith reinvents the romantic-comedy by making a film about a man in love with his kid.

In several ways Jersey Girl is more appealing than Clerks or Mallrats.... Nonetheless, it lacks the smart observational-humor edge and often thoughtful boldness -- and, most frustratingly, the promise -- of Chasing Amy or Dogma.

Jersey Girl emerges as Kevin Smith's most polished effort to date, but not his funniest.

In a strange way, it's both the most mainstream and the most personal movie Smith has made to date.

Even as the critic in me raged against the clichés, I found a big old lump in my throat and blinked back a few tears.

Kevin Smith inserts enough of his special charm to make "Jersey Girl" a winner.

'Quizá sea reciclado de otras tantas cintas por el estilo, pero el toque de Smith aparece para hacer de este ejercicio un recomendable filme sobre el acto de maduración.'

It's every bit as enjoyable as [Smith's] previous attempts, but much more mature. Kevin Smith has grown up, and he's grown-up well.

[on Raquel Castro] If her career is half as successful as those of similarly talented kids Christina Ricci and Kirsten Dunst, she'll be quite the sensation.

June 19, 2004
It's a nicely acted, competently made 'dramatic comedy' that might disappoint rabid Smith fans but is still a cut above the average Hollywood sugar-fest. Worth seeing.

Surprisingly unannoying...

April 24, 2004
A delightful dramedy that is a huge departure from the Jay and Silent Bob antics of his earlier work.

Like in all of Smith's films, the dialogue is wonderful and realistic, but also consistent with Smith's other films, there are times when the momentum doesn't hold up.

The film weaves an intriguing story about a single dad.

... a lightweight, but enjoyable valentine to family values and the Garden State

Jersey Girl might not be Kevin Smith's most original movie, but it's daring all the same.
