Chicago Reader - Jonathan Rosenbaum
The mixture of sincerity and sitcom phoniness is bewildering at times, but on some level, I guess, the film works.
TV Guide Magazine - Unnamed
You come away with a remarkable sense of the filmmakers and actors working together harmoniously as they delve into the heart of relationships between friends and lovers.
Variety - Todd McCarthy
Tries to mix the messy realities of mismatched relationships with the structural neatness of a musical-comedy view of the world, with mild, occasionally diverting results.
Christian Science Monitor - David Sterritt
It boasts appealing performances, and it takes a reasonably tasteful approach to its subject, aside from a string of four-letter words that sound strangely out of place in this romantic comedy.
The New York Times - Elvis Mitchell
Easier to watch than it is to believe.
