  • That's weird. I'm sure that When Harry Met Sally had been made already. And didn't it used to be funny?

  • Although not as scathingly funny as the Ryan-Crystal classic, director Nigel Cole offers an engaging romance infused with the warmth and optimism of his previous films Calendar Girls and Saving Grace.

  • It is an utterly irresistible collection of amorous vignettes, held together by Nigel Cole's (Calendar Girls) confident direction and the ferociously captivating charms of actress Peet.

  • ... the whole production is simply as mediocre and half-baked as Hollywood gets.

  • This is the kind of movie where the lovers don't have to worry about fate keeping them apart -- all they do is manufacture excuses not to be together, because if they didn't, you wouldn't have a movie.

  • Although A Lot Like Love is advertised like a generic teen comedy, its failure to provide [Ashton Kutcher] with his fourth consecutive U.S. number one reflects the film's avoidance of pratfall-style gags in favor of slushy romantic sentiment.

    It was enjoyable to watch and it wasn't just your typical Hollywood rom-com and it's worth your time. A must see!

    This was ok...I'm not a big fan of Kutcher, but the story was cute enough. The ending could've been better...it just ended suddenly.

    Don't know how many times I've seen this movie, but enjoy more and more each time I see it. Not to mention the greatest soundtrack of any movie, maybe ever. Great scenes, great acting, great music. I want Ashton's brother in this movie.
