Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle A desperately flailing sex-romance comedy that has not one even remotely sincere or funny moment. It has nothing to say, but says it for an hour and a half. Rated: 0/4 Jan 11, 2023 Full Review Variety Staff Variety Despite valiant efforts by a game Kevin Pollak to liven up this tired romantic comedy, only the patient should appreciate the gross humor and sophomoric plot. Aug 3, 2009 Full Review Janet Maslin New York Times When a battle-of-the-sexes comedy has one combatant complaining that the other never caps the toothpaste tube, there's bound to be a shortage of new thinking. Rated: 1.5/5 Aug 30, 2004 Full Review Jackie Potts Miami Herald Although Gross (Hexed) and Cox (Mr. Destiny) both seem earnest and personable, the script doesn't allow them to plumb any real emotions. Instead they're a couple of walking, talking singles clichés. Rated: 1/4 Aug 17, 2021 Full Review TV Guide This romantic comedy covers familiar ground in an entertaining fashion, helped by an enjoyable cast. Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 3, 2009 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 1/5 Jun 25, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member This awful film is loaded with characters so haplessly stupid and boring, that you wonder if it was 8-year old children who wrote this film. I am convinced- it had to be. This is one of the worst romantic comedies ever made- a atrociously written, shockingly idiotic waste of time. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member A little bit funny ... Nothing Special Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Actually pretty cute, with a Pre-"Friends" & "Cougar Town" Cortney Cox in a Sex & the City~esque role. How is it that Courtney actually looks better today than she did in 1993? Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member This is more of a cult classic relationship movie. Definitely worth seeing. Excellent movie for both men and women, not entirely a chic flic as it has "his" point of view. Kevin Pollack has a ton of funny one liners. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member While not the best movie on this often-played battle of the sexes genre, I enjoyed it Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Very funny. It is not the most original film in the world but enough to spent a saturday evening. Love young Courtney Cox!! Yes, very funny, but impossible to buy in DVD. I found a VHS in Amazon but it is NSTC and I live in Europe. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
