      Xan Brooks Independent (UK) [Director Richard] Wenk's debut has a certain baggy energy, but it finally has too little to say, and spends too long saying it. Rated: 2/5 Mar 20, 2019 Full Review Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly Rated: D+ Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Globe and Mail Rated: 1.5/4 Apr 5, 2002 Full Review Antonia Quirke Independent on Sunday The film works well when it is down on the street, spying on Gary doing his off-the-cuff stuff with real commuters, and Garcia is physically perfect for this kind of role. Mar 20, 2019 Full Review Caffeinated Clint Moviehole Chaming...the leads are splendid Rated: 3/5 Jul 11, 2003 Full Review Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat Spirituality & Practice An offbeat drama about miracles and love.

      Steve D Lame Romance with no humor. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Just The Ticket for Bittersweet Romance Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Like Andy and Andie is mmm , lovely movie with fine humor , not a surprising ending but beautifull , yes . SOMDVD Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member it was good to see Andy Garcia's young looking. do you think love can change people? could be a lot could be little for sure. but it is very hard to change people's personalities. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member ★★ (out of four) A stale and bland drama/comedy that features two likeable actors in the form of Andie MacDowell and Andy Garcia. The problem is the script. It never finds a way to make us care about the characters. Therefore the promise of them getting together doesn't matter. Garcia plays Gary Starke, a street hoodlum who makes his money by ripping off people with various schemes. His girlfriend Linda (MacDowell) has had enough of his crooked ways, so she packs up and heads to Paris to study cooking. Starke can't live without her so he attempts to change his ways in the hopes he can win her back. [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v48/Zeppo1/JusttheTicket.jpg[/IMG] Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review kevin w Although filled with recognizable names and faces, and a unique premise (ticket scalper makes good ... you don't see that every day), this one is simply death by formula: you see everything coming from a mile away. And so its no great shakes when it finally arrives. Wait until you've nothing better to do. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
