So completely separated from any sense of reality that one ends up gnashing their teeth in frustration while trying to stomach the sickeningly sweet premise

Brosnan's effortlessly charming performance, paired with Moore's prickly likeability, makes it a rather attractive proposition, all in all.

Your Honor, I object. It's not fair. Pierce and Moore are just not equally matched. He acts rings around her.

Sometimes in the movies, the laws of attraction can only lead to a misdemeanor.

This so silly that it never should have splattered onto the big screen.

Brosnan is at ease playing the suave cad, but all his vim and vigor is overruled in favor of director Peter Howitt's sappy romantic motions.

Obvious throwback to the battle-of-the-sexes comedies of the 1940, but this film lacks the wit of those earlier movies and, more importantly, the point.

The mix is almost unwatchable.

I didn't hate Laws of Attraction; I did, however, like it better in its 36 or so earlier incarnations.

What could have been an enjoyable modernization of classic character stories becomes little more than a pedestrian romance tale.

You won't need a keen legal mind to judge 'Laws of Attraction' more talky than fast-talking.

Enjoy the fun in this fun romantic comedy.

The only problem is that there's no attraction in Laws of Attraction. That's another way of saying 'no chemistry.'

The film doesn't have a 'plot' so much as it has a series of weak, pointless scenes that aren't funny, don't develop the characters and don't further the story.

The time spent watching this hackneyed waste is interminable, frustrating, and quite boring.

Lacklustre mix of dated screwball and Irish whimsy.

There's nothing awful here, but also not a single aspect of the movie to really like.

The exquisitely talented Moore, obviously uncomfortable with rapid-fire banter, should sue director Peter Howitt for an annulment, on the grounds of nonsupport.

With Moore and Brosnan as the star-crossed pair, the sparks that fly are brighter than in your typical romantic comedy.
