Guardian (UK)


A stylish, confident comedy with a light touch.

Variety (USA)


Like a trot around the track for the thoroughbreds involved, and one of the results is that it takes them far too long to get to the finish line.

Time (USA)


A gently funny, sweetly adventurous film that makes you feel genuinely good, that is to say, entirely unconned by false sentiment or sharp, overmanipulative Hollywood practices.

Roger Ebert


This is not a major Spielberg film, although it is an effortlessly watchable one.

Time Out London


This is the director's most likeable film in ages, even if it's insubstantial, overlong and, frankly, a touch redundant.
