Pitched as a homage to George Cukor's 1949 classic romantic comedy "Adam's Rib" (with Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy), "Laws of Attraction" is far separated from that film's exceptional timing and sincere comic exploration of a competitive couple of

In the end, lazy scriptwriting leads to a lukewarm verdict.

... painfully predictable, full of super-sized implausibilities, and crowded with supporting characters that are underdeveloped and overplayed.

What's perfect for [Moore] is that the movie uses manic farce to crack the self-possession that usually keeps her so remote from us.

The two lead players ... seem the least likely of anyone in the film to fight for themselves, unless you give them very large cocktails.

Like a Lladro statuette, this milky film is pretty and hollow, intellectually suspect but capable of providing a warm frisson of well-being

The actors work hard to concoct some chemistry, but it's tough to be Tracy and Hepburn, let alone Doris Day and Rock Hudson, when you're trying to get your mouth around lines that wouldn't pass muster on a UPN sitcom.

With its preposterous premise, it's hard to imagine what could have possessed this top-notch cast to get involved in this fiasco of a film.... the script is a disaster

Akin to your favorite "American Idol" contestant being prematurely knocked out is seeing two very likable actors trapped in a disappointing film.

Laws of Attraction has all the street cred of Glamor Magazine, and all the edge of Larry King. Which, incidentally, are two things the target audience would love.

Director Peter Howitt shows a facility for reducing an intriguing premise to lowest-common-denominator fodder for network TV.
