September 2, 2010
Charming, explicit love story for mature teens.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 22, 2003
It's smart, it knows its audience can join dots and it actually makes you think about - and not just laugh at - the messes that people get themselves in over four letters.

October 1, 2002
While the film strives to prove its cool, it's also built on [an] insufferably antique idea.
August 30, 2002
An airy, accented romantic comedy romp of infidelity and animal attraction [that hinges on] your personal threshold for average, of-the-moment romantic comedies.
Full Review | Original Score: C

Tres hermanas y una madre (y un hermano, y la novia...) no pueden estar equivocadas todas al mismo tiempo... o s?
June 22, 2002
The movie is upbeat, unpredictable and is a smart romantic comedy in a season of half-hearted attempts.
| Original Score: 3/4
October 31, 2001
It seems like several articles from FHM all rolled up into one. At least just reading the articles would have been a lot more entertaining.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
October 27, 2001
The ending is as predictable as it is insulting in the degree to which it disappoints.
| Original Score: 2/5
July 22, 2001
I had a belly full of this guy long before the film ended.

Townsend ... makes quite an impression in the title role.
June 8, 2001
The character can only exist among silly, somewhat desperate women. This makes the willing suspension of disbelief a tad tougher for half the viewing populace.
May 23, 2001
Engaging if not exactly revelatory.
May 21, 2001
Stembridge makes the twists as pleasantly surprising as the dawning realization that you've gone from judge to accomplice.
May 21, 2001
Stembridge keeps things bustling along at a lively enough pace to deflect any introspective focus on the matchups that are never presented as relationships, only flings.

Stuart Townsend does an impressive balancing act in "About Adam," a sly romantic comedy set in Dublin that makes a case for the virtue of infidelity. Sort of.

May 17, 2001
A glowing Hudson radiates high spirits, and Mr. Townsend ... makes his chameleon character seem credible.
May 17, 2001
For his part Townsend does Adam with a lightness of touch that fits in with the film's cheery view of his unscrupulousness.
May 17, 2001
We've all watched enough Springer to know what happens when a fiance makes a move on the bride-to-be's sister. Those family dramas involve lawyers, if not guns and knives. Never rose petals.
May 17, 2001
If anybody still thinks Kate Hudson is getting too much mileage out of being Goldie Hawn's daughter, they'll be pleasantly surprised by the range she shows in About Adam.
May 11, 2001
While it obviously won't appeal to all viewers, the film benefits enough from some charming performances, as well as a unique enough storyline that will keep viewers wondering where it's headed, to earn a passing grade.
