Audience Reviews for Sliding Doors

John Hannah is whimsical and perfect, and the character of Helen is ballsy and relatable; however, Gwyneth's faux British accent is a bit grating on the nerves. Very sweet and affecting Butterfly Effect parallel universes with subtle overlaps and similarities in each. Much like "(500) Days of Summer," which got the jump on my "Annie Hall"-esque anti-romance play in 2008, Super Reviewer and writing partner Jim Hunter, and I are co-writing a play about small events changing lives SANS the element of destiny. The two universes won't end in the same pre-packaged Hollywood happy ending.

Gwyneth is absolutely charming. She absolutely makes or breaks this film. Without her, or with any other actress in her place, it would have faltered. The premise is kind of sophomoric but boy does Gwynie act her brains out.

A cute little movie. I was interested to see how Lynch was going to do this but he did an excellent job. Thank God he made her 'look' totally different otherwise it would have been hard to follow. Cunning how he killed off the Helen we wanted to survive but then pulled it round at the end to have a happy ending where we presume she will still fall in love with James. Great performances.

It's surprising, romantic, depressing, and lovable. Can't find that in a lot of film, can ya? Paltrow delivers another British accented performance with her usual chutzpah.
