Fans of Billy Crystal's amphibian qualities may be amused, but the rest of us have to contend with a slavish Woody Allen imitation.

Rob Reiner directs with deftness and sincerity, making the material seem more engaging than it is, at least until the plot machanics begin to unwind and the film starts to seem shapeless.
September 10, 2004
Overrated nonsense about two people who would never date in real life.

As played winningly by Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan, there is a quirky chemistry created in their offbeat pairing.

What makes it special, apart from the Ephron screenplay, is the chemistry between Crystal and Ryan.

What keeps the momentum going, despite the story's predictability, is the dialogue and the chemistry, which makes for a high-wire act.

Meg Ryan-Billy Crystal romantic comedy is hard not to like.

December 7, 2015
While it may be packed with whip-smart, endlessly quotable dialogue and laugh-out-loud moments, its enduring popularity undoubtedly stems from the fact that it has genuine heart.
