USA Today
All coy and fey -- and painless to digest.

Miami Herald
A charming confection spun from pure whimsy.

Chicago Sun-Times
This is the kind of movie you sort of like, and yet even while you're liking it, you're thinking how much better these characters and this situation could have been with a little more imagination and daring.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Tries too hard to be playful and sensual, wacky and romantic, and comes away feeling fake and prefabricated instead.
63
Chicago Tribune
A dish that's pretty easy to swallow, but if it could have borrowed some of Isabella's more potent spices, it might have boasted a more lasting flavor.
63
New York Post
Prime date fare, but cotton-candy light and occasionally just a little too whimsical.
50
San Francisco Chronicle
Wants to be a brightly colored bubble but has trouble getting aloft.

New York Daily News
Gets the proportions all wrong -- too much magic, not enough realism.
49
Mr. Showbiz
Predictable, tame dreariness.
33
Entertainment Weekly
Has all the mood enhancing flavor of a tropical cocktail made with watered down rum and fake fruit juice.
30
Rolling Stone
Cruz is a dish, but her movie is as soggy and indigestible as Styrofoam.
20
If Penélope Cruz were any less attractive, maybe someone would have noticed how dull this mild, would-be romantic fairy tale has turned out.
