      Audience Member The movie was entertaining-one of those movies you can watch home on quiet evenings. I think Jon bon jovi has not done that bad of a job playing the seductive leading man. All the actors have played their part well. Jon is charming as usual. The role of Elena and Hilary are those that I am sure lot of women could relate to, especially those who are fans of bonjovi!!. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Love it, Jon is soooo sexy!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member AGAIN JON BON JOVI VERY SEXY MOVIE SHOWS SOME SKIN IN THIS ONE! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Jon Bon Jovi was annoying at first but he got better. The story was interesting, if not a slight rip-off of Woody Allen's Everyone Says I Love You. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member The leading man knows the business, in his band as well as in this movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member I wasn't expecting nothing from this movie, but I've actually enjoyed it very much. Interesting plot, interesting characters and an surprising end that, for this type of movie, is actually very good! And Jon Bon Jovi actually can act a bit! His face was too familiar to work in other projects, but in this it fits perfectly! It's a surprise! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader Maybe I'm just a sucker for backstage stories about theater people as well as for Thandie Newton, but this English picture kept me absorbed, happy, and occasionally amused despite its dubious details. Apr 17, 2018 Full Review Derek Elley Variety On the evidence of this and "Moonlight and Valentino," Bon Jovi could have a screen future if he continues to make the right choices. Mar 26, 2009 Full Review Tom Charity Time Out This is watchable, but old hat. Feb 9, 2006 Full Review Maitland McDonagh TV Guide While buff, blandly handsome and a pleasant enough screen presence, Jon Bon Jovi can't suggest the bottomless reserves of guile, intelligence and resolve his role demands. Rated: 2/4 Apr 17, 2018 Full Review Rebecca Murray About.com Rated: 2/5 Jun 13, 2003 Full Review Brandon Judell Critics Inc./America Online Jon Bon Jovi, with his fiendishly angelic smile, thick, unruly locks, and piercing, flirtatious orbs, is slowly grooming himself for stardom.
