Proceeds at that pace to an ending that is as inevitable as it is poignant.

Moves at an agreeable, meandering pace but never loses its verve or its sharp humor.

Ten Items or Less is not landmark cinema nor is it deeply thought-provoking, but it's smart, funny, knowledgeable about life and people, and a crowd-pleaser.

It's just a little film that strives to be likable, and is less so than it might have been.

I don't know if it's ickier to assume that writer-director Brad Silberling (Moonlight Mile) thinks the culture-clash jokes he pushes in 10 Items or Less are charming because they're earnest, or because they're tongue-in-cheek. Either way, this sale is void.
