Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
The movie has been directed by the Farrelly brothers...Here, they're sensitive and warm-hearted, never push too hard, empathize with the characters, allow Lindsey and Ben to become people we care about.

Ultimately goes the distance, it gets the job done with a halfhearted bunt rather than a solid line drive.

Relationship comedy like this is mother's milk to Drew Barrymore, who, as usual, is adorable and perfect.

USA Today

By Mike Clark
By contrast, other Hornby screen adaptations are "About a Boy" and "High Fidelity"- superb comedies both and, in Fidelity's case, a treatise on male obsession with far more depth and even more laughs.

San Francisco Chronicle

A romantic comedy that flirts with something serious but never gets past the flirting stage.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
The movie is so soggy and anonymous, I had to remind myself that the Farrelly brothers, Peter and Bobby, directed it. It's sad to watch the kingpins of gross-out try to dial down to cute. Swung at and missed.
