    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    Nobody else working in movies today can make her (Keaton) own misery such a source of delight or make the spectacle of utter embarrassment look like a higher form of dignity.

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    Stumbles in miscalculating how far it needs to go to make this particular romance convincing when, as another romantic comedy character put it, it had us from hello.

    Variety Scott Foundas

    Jokes about impotence, menopause and other middle-aged maladies reside where a screenplay ought to live.
