Critics' reviews
  • "One of its most obvious strengths is that it can satisfy many different types of audiences -- those who demand something substantial from their motion pictures, and those who could care less"
  • "A frothy, lightweight romantic comedy that strives to seem richer and more complex than it really is."
  • "In a finely realized and multi-layered first film, writer-director Peter Howitt treats us to a clever and urbane exploration of the monumental repercussions of tiny twists of fate."
  • "That neither tale is especially interesting doesn't matter -- the contrast alone is enough to make 'Sliding Doors' an irresistible romantic fantasy"
  • "Unfortunately, once the freshness of the concept wears off, the same premise starts to feel mechanical and willful."
  • "You're hooked enough to keep watching, even if the characterizations veer toward the two-dimensional."
  • "Ultimately, Sliding Doors becomes a victim of its own cleverness, shutting down all that early promise"
