The result is a worthy woman's film and Jolie's best showcase to date.
50
Miami Herald
Pseudo-profound fluff.
40
The A.V. Club
A banal message movie.

Salon
Dimly entertaining, the sort of thing that doesn't insult you so much that you feel compelled to flee the theater, but it's too inert to be anything close to charming or compelling.
38
New York Post
Partly a schmaltzy, by-the-numbers romantic comedy, partly a shallow rumination on the emptiness of success -- and entirely soulless.
30
The relentless upbeatness of Life or Something Like It wrecks the possibility of either real laughter or genuine pathos.

Slate
This mad prophet says it will die in a week.
30
Washington Post
It's difficult to concentrate on the story. Not that there's much to concentrate on anyway.
30
Film Threat
Director Stephen Herek certainly doesn't come up with anything, and he fails to make the swings between silliness and schmaltz smoothly.
25
Entertainment Weekly
Mostly about slapping together a bunch of clichés -- outdated clichés at that -- regarding the loneliness of ambitious women.
