Entertainment Weekly
Serendipity has no business working, but it does. And by the way, Eugene Levy has no business almost stealing the show, but he does, too.
Boston Globe
Serendipity returns us, if only for a couple of hours, to the Manhattan of our dreams.
Wall Street Journal
Serendipity is "Sliding Doors" with no alternate versions; it's willed enchantment all the way.
Serendipity is a throwback to a more innocent era in American life, 25 days ago.
Miami Herald
Serendipity's finale is a perfect crowd-pleaser, sweet and unlikely and over the top.
New York Post
Honestly, it's still pretty hard to resist as a guilty pleasure: A fluffy date-night movie that wrung a tear or two from more than one hardened male critic's eyes, chick flick or no.
If you can believe Serendipity's cockeyed conceit, you may find that discovering this escapist love story feels like a lucky accident.
New York Daily News
The lightweight bauble is perfect entertainment for now.
There is a thrill in seeing them wooing and pursuing each other through the streets of New York, a city that here again, for a while, becomes a movie isle of joy.
Philadelphia Inquirer
Contrived and schematic, Peter Chelsom's film is a mechanical bird that never takes wing.
Rolling Stone
Does romantic comedy have to come off as sugared stupidity? It does here.
