A poor imitation of a screwball comedy.

We don't feel much of anything.

The draggy narrative of this 1997 comedy is tough to sit through -- there are even several overproduced musical numbers -- but it does have an intriguing subversive element that I don't want to give away.

The film's brazen amorality gradually freezes the smile on your face.

For those of us not so enthralled with Ms. Roberts, you'll have to endure the movie, but will be mildly entertained with good, old music and some stellar comedy provided almost entirely by Rupert Everett.

A misbegotten attempt to update the genre that only proves the enduring -- if not downright inviolable -- appeal of the boy-meets-girl scenario.

A romantic comedy conspicuously lacking either romance or comedy.

Echoes of Roberts' personal life slop over into the plot with the alacrity of a foot fungus doing the two-step in the locker room of a high school gym.

A farce-comedy, it must thrive, if it's to do so, on sparkle. But the bubbles are sparse, partly because of Roberts's low fizz level.

A screwball comedy that's decidedly lacking in screwballs.

Is there a more charisma-bereft actor in Hollywood than Dermot Mulroney?

This one is being pushed as Julia Roberts's return to Pretty Woman form, and, sadly, it might be just that.
January 1, 2000
An uneasy mix of well-realized humor and unrealized sadness.
January 1, 2000
A disappointment.
January 1, 2000
[An] obtuse, prettily decorative comedy.

Emotionally, this is a movie that just doesn't compute. You leave feeling cross, as if you've been tricked.
