Chicago Reader - Jonathan Rosenbaum
Despite a continuity problem or two, this is one of those rare contemporary romantic comedies that actually work.
63
New York Post - Lou Lumenick
As an actress, Lopez is a bit stiff, as she has been in all of her movies save "Out of Sight." It really doesn't matter much here, given the sparks between her and Fiennes and the fact that the role is pretty much form-fitted to her public persona.
60
Washington Post - Ann Hornaday
It's a warm, if pallid, romantic comedy that may not do much more to burnish Lopez's reputation, but will certainly not bruise it.

Film Threat - Rich Cline
This is by the books in every way, funny and undemanding ... and also rather sweet and heartwarming.

The New York Times - Dana Stevens
Blandly charming.
