Variety
Perfectly harmless, often humorous, featherweight confection -- think "Serendipity" re-imagined as a teen-skewing Saturday morning sitcom.
50
When so many PG-13 movies are encroaching on R-rated turf, it's heartening to see a film that responsibly approaches its audience.
50
The movie has some clumsy dialogue and awkward turns, but the picture is brisk and likable.

Miami Herald
On the Line's cutesy premise is no more ridiculous than that of most romantic comedies.
40
Film Threat
Not a good film. In fact, it's a rather bad example of that already barrel-bottom-scraping genre, the teenybopper romantic comedy.
40
Los Angeles Times
Sophisticated romantic comedy for people who think "Corky Romano" is trenchant political satire.
30
L.A. Weekly
Bass isn't a gifted actor, but he retains his dignity, mostly by keeping his head down and avoiding the eyes of the idiots around him.
25
Chicago Sun-Times
An agonizingly creaky movie that laboriously plods through a plot so contrived that the only thing real about it is its length.
25
New York Daily News
Whether he's the victim of poor directing or misguided ambition, Bass is almost entirely charisma-free.
11
Austin Chronicle
Instantly forgettable.
