Although the movie disappointed me, it did not dishearten me about Edwards Burns as an actor or filmmaker.

The sophomore jinx, the bane of hot, young film makers, has struck again.

Sluggish and stiff run-of-the-mill romance comedy that clogs the heart more than it pumps anything remotely stimulating
| Original Score: 2/5

A bland, so-so romantic comedy without the charm to see it through.

Sadly, the 28-year-old Irish auteur from New York lost his footing while stepping up the Hollywood food chain. Slickness set in.

She's the One isn't slick, smooth or particularly good, and it offers only a perfunctory exploration of the human heart.

Like Brothers McMullen-lite and that one was pretty minimal to begin with.

The characters are all interesting individually, and yet none are compelling or involving. With life reduced to one-liners, they have no way to develop a chemistry with each other or with the audience.

A generally unenjoyable romp through the lives of a family of morally misguided, dysfunctional New Yorkers and the people they hurt.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

the characters are generally unlikable, and only toward the end of the film do they begin to show any kind of depth.

This time, it seems as if the material is a little ahead of Burns, rather than the other way around.

With two nasty characters for every one appealing character, it's hard to cheer for these folks.
| Original Score: 68/100

With a budget about 120 times greater than McMullen, Burns has made She's the One, a film just as unlikely to offend...and, unfortunately, equally unlikely to entertain.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

Although the characters are mostly attractive, and some funny things happen between them, most of the movie is given over to scenes of one character complaining to a second character about a third who is not present.

Terrible messages about relationships. Ed Burns is a mysoginist. But some laughs, could be worse.
| Original Score: 2/5

A disappointing second feature from Ed Burns, the director of The Brothers McMullen.
