... it's one of the few romantic movies that center around an interracial relationship and keeps it real.

Mixing mirth with more sophisticated moments, this delightful romantic romp ultimately triumphs primarily because of the easy-going screen chemistry generated by Sanaa Lathan and Simon Baker.

A beguilingly heartfelt, low-key farce.

Something New isn't just silly, it's an embarrassment to people who are genuinely trying to level the racial playing field in America today.

Generally the story swings wildly from preachy to just plain silly. It is truly a story of missed opportunities.

There's zero chemistry between the leads; for all their passionate declarations of love, you never believe they've even spoken to each other before the cameras start turning over.

Something hackneyed, trite and boring, you mean.
November 23, 2006
By and large this is a hollow, laugh-free zone paying lip service to the issue in trite, predictable fashion.

Anyone who finds something new in Something New is obviously looking a whole lot closer than the movie deserves.

This 'new romantic comedy' fails on all three counts:It's not all that funny, it's not very romantic, and it's certainly nothing new.

A diamond in the rough.

Quietly, almost subliminally, Something New is more profound than the overwrought "relevance" of Oscar nominee Crash.

I suspect than a lot of audiences will find the serious nature of the subplot to be distracting.
February 16, 2006
It's just too bad that this half-realized concept is tethered to an utterly unconvincing, warmed-over interracial romance rooted more in Harlequin fantasy than social realism.
February 11, 2006
Something New, in its endearingly daft third act, manages the neat feat of feeling sweetly inevitable rather than boilerplate predictable.
February 10, 2006
An affecting story that dares to dig deeper than the usual romantic comedy fluff.
February 8, 2006
... a nice mix of opposites-attract romanticism with the cultural divide drama.
