The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Rick Groen
British humour at its eclectic best, a deliciously heady mix of dry wit and ribald farce.

Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
Grant is the rare actor who can mix the characteristics of sex appeal and ambivalence in believable, rather than irritating, proportions.

ReelViews

By James Berardinelli
Possesses the rare ability to make an audience laugh (and laugh hard) and cry, without ever seeming manipulative or going hopelessly over-the-top.

Chicago Tribune

By Gene Siskel
A better film about love delayed than "Sleepless in Seattle." It's funnier, more credible, more bittersweet and the characters are a whole lot brighter. Naturally, it won't be as big a hit. [18 March 1994, Friday, p.C]

USA Today

By Susan Wloszczyna
It's a clever, multitiered affair built around the title rituals, frosted with delicious characterizations and tasty repartee. [11 March 1994, Life, p.4D]

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
With his crisp intelligence always a step away from collapsing into paralyzing self-consciousness, and his polished good-boy veneer often giving way to hysteria and vulgarity, Grant is a delight. [18 March 1994, Daily Notebook, p.C-3]

Baltimore Sun

By Ann Hornaday
The movie dazzles with its slick lines, but there's a situational intelligence at play too -- little vignettes involving minor characters are begun at one wedding and then evolve into major events at the next.
