Critic Reviews for One Fine Day

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (9)

The formula remains evergreen -- two attractive leads are thrown together by quirk; develop antipathies, even loathing; then, ultimately decide they have overreacted and are hopelessly in love.

An uninspired formula movie with another fine performance by Michelle Pfeiffer.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

One Fine Day is two formulaic hours, but they do illustrate how two attractive leads and a lickety-split narrative can elevate meager material into something this side of bearability.

With oodles of charm, it turns its "meet hate" into a "meet cute" with two appealing stars.

April 3, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

An affable romcom...

If you're a big Pfeiffer fan, you'll be horribly disappointed.
