      Critics Consensus

      Though Jolie is appealing, Life or Something Like It is too contrived and predictable to convincingly convey its message of stopping to smell the roses.

      Nell Minow Common Sense Media Old fashioned date movie for older teens. Rated: 4/5 Dec 25, 2010 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com Watching the bleach blonde actress prance around the steep hills of Seattle in skintight pastel skirt suits wobbling atop sky-high stilettos is almost more than one should have to bare.

      Matteo G It's nice to follow the movie until the end to know how is going to finish, but the good idea is a bit lost in the movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/13/24 Full Review anne d Although it is not gonna change anyone's life, is a good movie for a Saturday afternoon. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/05/24 Full Review Audience Member Better than it’s rated. Great message. Angelina was awesome! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/03/23 Full Review Sanja S It delivered on its promise and had a wonderful cast. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/30/23 Full Review wallysparks It was an okay movie. The premise of the movie was very intriguing and had a lot of potential. That is kind of where it ends for me though. Any actual plot and character was muzzled. You couldn't get a clear concise picture of who Lanie really was or how her childhood (which was brought up a few times in the movie, seemingly for nothing) actually had any significance in how she was as an adult. It was watchable I will give it that, and there were cute moments strewn in there. But I couldn't give it more than 3 stars Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/25/23 Full Review Michael T I see why this movie got so many negative reviews. It showed up the superficiality of just living life for the conventional rewards of public recognition, success (money), and having a famous or well placed spouse. All this is questioned and the characters look to find themselves in a deeper and more fulfilling sense. Angelina (in her prime) totally owned the screen throughout and she had good chemistry with Edward Burns in his supporting role. Yes, there are the usual rom-com cliches, but the performances of the leads overshadowed these shortcomings. I found the story enjoyable.
