“When will Hollywood learn that real estate is not a career that Americans find sympathetic? First there was Sarah Jessica Parker’s go-go broker in Did You Hear About the Morgans? Now we get Adams as Anna, a “stager” (she makes for-sale condos look all nice, see) so uptight and brittle one wonders if wardrobe didn’t maybe cinch the ankle straps too tightly on the actress’s $600 designer shoes.

Anna must control everything, a trait that would make audiences want to light her hair on fire—if she were played by anyone other than Amy Adams.

Despite its many flaws, the film does pull off what many other rom-coms can’t: Make us care whether Anna gets the right man. The producers—and anybody who goes to see it—have Adams to thank for that.” – Leslie Gornstein, E! Movie Reviews

“Adams has an ability to make things seem fresh and new; everything seems to be happening to her for the first time, and she has a particularly innocent sincerity that’s convincing. (Who once said if you can fake sincerity, you can fake anything?)” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“If the young Ann-Margret had been allowed to wiggle her brain as much as her bod, she might have come off something like Amy Adams. Is there an actress today who can suffuse a single scene with so many infectious mood swings? As Anna, she’s fiery and vulnerable, wistful and exuberant; she lends a rare dignity to the portrayal of a woman who doesn’t know what she wants.” – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
