Empire Magazine Rated: 2/5 Jan 7, 2006 Full Review Wendy Ide Times (UK) That's weird. I'm sure that When Harry Met Sally had been made already. And didn't it used to be funny? Rated: 2/5 Jul 5, 2005 Full Review Stella Papamichael BBC.com Although not as scathingly funny as the Ryan-Crystal classic, director Nigel Cole offers an engaging romance infused with the warmth and optimism of his previous films Calendar Girls and Saving Grace. Rated: 3/5 Jun 21, 2005 Full Review Eddie Harrison The List Although A Lot Like Love is advertised like a generic teen comedy, its failure to provide [Ashton Kutcher] with his fourth consecutive U.S. number one reflects the film's avoidance of pratfall-style gags in favor of slushy romantic sentiment. Rated: 2/5 Apr 24, 2019 Full Review Cole Smithey ColeSmithey.com This grueling, training-wheel romance comedy covers a six year stretch of time in which Generation Y boy toy Oliver Martin (Ashton Kutcher) slowly realizes that he can't wait for his life plans to gel before committing to his affection for his narcissist Rated: D Jun 19, 2009 Full Review Jim Lane Sacramento News & Review Rated: 2/5 Aug 7, 2008 Full Review Read all reviews

Danielle R Love this movie. It's funny and sweet and different enough from others in the genre. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review steve d A lot like a movie but not an effective one. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member 2.7 definitely not bad at all Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 11/08/21 Full Review Audience Member It can get to be a bit slow-paced at times, but overall endearing and cute/predictable film! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member It was as if written by a mental patient seeking redemption from an imaginary friend. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Commedia leggera e spensierata, condotta da Asthon Kutcher, specializzato in questo tipo di film. Manca un po' di sviluppo, ci si limita ad una serie di relazioni e impedimenti che si ripetono molto simili. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
