Boxoffice Magazine
Entertaining, full of laughs and, as far as chick flicks go, is a sweet, romantic trip worth taking for audiences so inclined.

Variety
Predictable but pleasant comedic fantasy.

Orlando Sentinel
Bell, a petite, pretty blonde, may or may not have the Meg Ryan-Julia Roberts-Sandra Bullock goods. When in Rome, a leaden variation on that rom-com recipe, fails utterly to make her case.

Certain scenes in When in Rome signify nothing less than the death of screen slapstick, but I’m hoping it’s one of those fake-out movie deaths where it’s not really dead, not forever.

There are dull stabs at verbal wit that leave you baffled, bored or slightly grossed out.

Miami Herald
Tale is anything but spellbinding.

It winds up being predictably charmless and forgettable, even as a travelogue or iPod download.
25
An inert comedy starring Kristen Bell as a workaholic unlucky in love, When in Rome is a rom-bomb.
25
It boasts only loose ties to the 1954 romance "Three Coins in the Fountain." And it's best not to even think of "Roman Holiday," the gold standard for hanging, and driving, and doing as Romans do. Rent that instead.
16
It’s the kind of wretched embarrassment that may leave viewers trying to suspend the belief that they’re still sitting in the theater watching it.
