Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: There are certainly some questionable ingredients to the story, but you're not likely to notice them while the film is under way. You're likely to be laughing. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Oct 26, 2011

Fresh: A consistently happy comedic fable which should please romanticists drawn to a teaming of Neil Simon, Marsha Mason and Herbert Ross. – Variety Staff, Variety, Oct 26, 2011

Rotten: Simon's gift also is his downfall. He's so good at writing lightweight dialogue that it all begins to sound the same. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Oct 26, 2011

Fresh: Ross directs competently and the cast could not be bettered. – Film4, Oct 26, 2011
