'90s fantasy-romance has mature themes, lots of profanity.

a clever conceit, but it's one that eventually wears out its welcome.

A thinking person's romantic comedy -- but, hey, don't let that frighten you away. It's also lots of fun.

Paltrow gives the first credible evidence since Emma that her career may last.

It's not so much the tale itself as the slippery interplay between characters that makes Sliding Doors enjoyable.

With a pleasing balance of romance, comedy and drama, Sliding Doors is an exceedingly original story that appeals to both the heart and mind.

Se você quer assistir a um filme sobre realidades 'paralelas', é melhor conferir os infinitamente superiores 'Corra, Lola, Corra' e 'Feitiço do Tempo'.

Ultimately, Sliding Doors becomes a victim of its own cleverness, shutting down all that early promise.

A clever and satisfying comedy that comes as a blissful relief from more high-minded festival fare.

Paltrow is delightful as the trendy Londoner running parallel lives and has a disturbingly accurate English accent.

Great script, interesting camera work, superb acting. I can find nothing wrong with it, the more I think about it.

Once the movie throws in a jolting, late-in- the-game plot twist that could have been borrowed from City of Angels, it never regains its balance.

Gwyneth Paltrow is engaging as the two Helens, and I have no complaints about her performance. Pity about the screenplay.

If you can let plausibility slide, this tale of two simultaneous realities created by catching/missing a train will be a fun ride.

This proposition from English writer-director Peter Howitt is not unique, but I have never seen a film that presents the idea so clearly, so cleanly, so provocatively.

As long as we continue to find movies there as delightful and breezy as Sliding Doors, I'll be satisfied.

The viewer is easily swayed to root for one story over the other, but things don't always work out as you'd expect.
