Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
In the end, you just feel good about these people, and that's a nice sensation these days.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
There are several Idiot Plot moments when a simple line of dialogue (''He has Tourette's syndrome'') would work wonders but is never said. And yet the movie has a sweetness and care that is touching.

L.A. Weekly

By John Patterson
Holds its potentially problematic ingredients together remarkably well, summoning outstanding performances from Morrow and Linney, while never dipping into sentiment or patronizing the ailment's sufferers.

Film Threat

It works because this isn't really a "disease" film, it's a love story. It just so happens one of the main characters has Tourette Syndrome. Thus, I too will take the easy way out and say, "it's a good love story...with a twitch."

Christian Science Monitor

By David Sterritt
Although this is a likable comedy-drama, it never quite balances its humanitarian message (disabled people fall in love like everyone else) with its standard-issue romantic angles.

New York Post

By Lou Lumenick
Morrow fares less well with the script, which he also produced and collaborated on.

TV Guide

By Maitland McDonagh
The love story is pretty conventional stuff, but Linney's finely calibrated, low-key performance as Callie goes a long way towards making it more interesting than it might otherwise be.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

By William Arnold
Morrow and Linney are gifted, extremely likable actors, and the movie has some ingratiating moments and a seductive soundtrack. But there's a by-the-numbers inevitability to every scene, and it never clicks into place to be anything special.

New York Daily News

By Jami Bernard
The movie walks a tightrope between playing this misunderstood malady for laughs and sentiment.
