Didn't get to see the whole thing thru as I was cooking, but I really liked it. An in turns subtle, sweet, raucous & funny movie with two actors most of us already love.

Cute but stupid... not a re-watcher

I have a hard time watching movies with Pierce Brosnan. I just keep wondering if his character is supposed to be Irish, or if he just happens to be useless at doing an American accent.
Aside from that I quite enjoyed this movie. It was easy to sit through it. It wasn't the type of comedy that made me laugh, but it was definitely entertaining and it managed to keep me entertained throughout.

Fun fluff is strictly by the numbers.

The two leads are likeable and really try but there is no saving this script.

This was hilarious! I could never actually see them together, but they managed to make it seem possible. So for that it was interesting. Not sure it's really worth seeing though.

Ok, so I totally wanted to swap spots with Julianne Moore! It is a fun romantic comedy that is a must for every chick-flick collection!

I am a sucker for lame rom coms with extremely attractive casting

Great movie. I'm just not sure who played the Song rolling back the dice. I couldn't find it anywhere. On even on iTunes and I really love the song so much.

Writing was pretty bad. And everything else was pretty bad too. The castle looked cool, but definitely didn't make up for everything else.

Silly and lightweight clone of sorts. Harmless and insignificant diversion.

Attempts at being funny, witty, romantic, sexy... Fails horribly on all counts

This is a fantastic film. Well written and well acted by both the main characters and the supporting actors. This film harkens back to the classic films of yesterday with its witty banter and sizzling repartee. Ms. Moore and Mr. Brosnan turn in performances touching and romantic, elevated from the sugary and saccharine by the sharp and pointed chemistry shared by our protagonists. At a time in film history when we indulge in no character study or one so deep and dully filled with pathos as to make a storyline all but impossible, the script in this film focuses on the characters of this smart and funny gem while still allowing the story to continue and grow without being overwhelmed. If you want to see a current film that holds its own when in compared to the best the past has to offer, watch this. You'll come back to it again and again. So get out the Snowballs and the tequila and enjoy. Huevos de Chivo!

Laws of Attraction is a movie about opposites attract. It's funny, putting the antagonist at odds in scenes after scenes and numerous high stakes divorces. It has romance fairly well sprinkled, and just a tiny bit of emotional drama. The settings are beautiful and the scenario engrossing.

Julianne Moore plays to perfection an adorably anxious control freak lawyer with a self-esteem problem and a perfect record. She preaches the benefits of divorce, doesn't believe in marriage, and is commitment phobic. Pierce Brosnan's lawyer character has just as much a pristine record, but is more relax and chaotic. He doesn't believe in divorce and is a romantic at heart. Surprisingly, this more bohemian persona fits him well, and he gives a good performance.

The piece might not be extremely inventive, as story goes, but it's interesting. The "lie" doesn't rear its ugly head, but the "irredeemable act" makes a brief appearance to change the course of the scenario, and is well handled without too much reproach.

It's good funny romance. It will melt your heart. See it.
