It's a novel, and zany, romantic dilemma, and though Lucas gets plenty of laughs out of this preposterous situation, what's singular about Prelude to a Kiss is the depth of feeling it wrests from this whimsical conceit.
This Prelude to a Kiss is not only without charm and wit, but it's also clumsily set forth: many people seeing it may wonder what, in heaven's name, is going on.
As a reflexive meditation on the nature of love in the AIDS era, this erio-comedy is poignant but it still bears too much the theatrical sensibility of the source material.
The body-switching gimmick shouldn't work, but it really does.
So-so romantic comedy fantasy that barely gets by.
This adult fairy tale gives us a glimpse of our unity with others and celebrates the enduring power of love.
Are romantic comedies supposed to give you the willies?
...a gentle, romantic fantasy that will delight most viewers and leave a few others scratching their heads.
Prelude to a kiss is a nice little film without as much personality as its two star actors, Alec Baldwin and Meg Ryan could have given it with a better script. They're the main reason for this film working. It's not overly funny, not overly romantic, but it somehow works.
I would recommend it to fans of romance movies, but not many others.
A dumb little tale about old men jumping bodies after kissing brides and all hell breaking loose. Don't resolve itself very creatively.
A Prelude to a Kiss is a strange but likable movie. It's about a dieing old man that switches bodies with a bride (Meg Ryan) on her wedding day.
