It plays like a movie dreamed up by people in a studio marketing department who'd decided to bare their souls.
Los Angeles Times:
Bullock is a genuinely engaging performer, which at least gives the treacle some minty freshness.
It's Bullock's first shot at a role in which she plays second fiddle neither to males nor special effects. And she turns out to be every bit as delightful as anyone might have expected.
Compared to While You Were Sleeping, even the half-baked scenario of the Marisa Tomei-Robert Downey Jr. romance Only You looks witty and inventive.
The film's casual warmth may make you tolerate some of the shortcomings -- especially since Bullock seems to be having such a fine time with her first starring role.
[Bullock] knows one of the secrets of doing romantic comedy: treating the romance as a good joke.
New York Times:
This is a formula film, but it has the kind of good cheer and fine tuning that occasionally give slickness a good name.
A perfect example of this unoriginal-but-enjoyable type of film making.
As cute and cuddly a bedtime story as anyone could wish for.
Director Jon Turteltaub has a smooth style suited to classic farce and knows just how to pace the material to accentuate the positive.
A sappy, negligible, thoroughly innocuous romantic comedy vehicle for Sandra Bullock.
