USA, Canada

Guardian (UK)

press

A stylish, confident comedy with a light touch.

Variety (USA)

press

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)

press

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

press

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

Time Out London

press

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