What remains true throughout is the enrapturing spell this sparkling entertainment casts upon the audience.
January 1, 2000
This is romantic comedy in an old-fashioned sense, where the pleasures come more from a zestful staging than from foolish details like whether the relationship is 'realistic.'

This is a perfect example of how good 'mainstream' movies can be.

Grant and Roberts build an exciting fire between them!

This flick is ten times the movie that Phantom Menace is!

I have to give Roberts credit for being willing to poke fun at herself.

The movie is bright, the dialogue has wit and intelligence, and Roberts and Grant are very easy to like.

Blithe and exhilarating!

Director Roger Michell uses technical flourishes sparingly but to lovely effect.

Sweet and mostly winning!

All the other supporting players are British television stars and all rise to the occasion of this big-budget feature film.
January 1, 2000
Greatly entertaining.
January 1, 2000
One reason the film succeeds is that it so deftly combines elements from sappy U.S. romantic comedies and the much more caustic British satires. And when that experiment works here, it works well.

Director Roger Michell isn't content to rest on his stars' slapstick laurels, mining instead the more sophisticated, if subversive, socio-romantic pratfalls in Curtis' script.
