Storyline Heading
For an awkward, self-conscious girl like Kiki, being the personal assistant to a beautiful megastar like Gwen isn't easy. At first it seems her biggest challenge is to keep the peace between Eddie and Gwen and their public image intact, but soon Kiki is faced with a more personal concern as her longtime friendship with Eddie begins to take romantic turn.
DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Romantic - Even die-hard Julia Roberts fans may be disappointed by this disjointed romantic comedy/Hollywood satire. Some crude sexual jokes make the film inappropriate for young children.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Below Average "A miasma of vanity envelops America's Sweethearts where wit ought to reign. It clings, this stink of smug preening. And it depresses: Why can't some of the most celebrated and highest paid movie stars in the world, two of the industry's sharpest comic writers, and a studio chief who left his aerie at Walt Disney in a blaze of publicity to start his own freewheeling shop smell the difference between parody and posturing?''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Very Good "To date, America's Sweethearts represents the best non-animated fare that Hollywood has been able to serve up this summer. It is viewed as a form of "counter-programming", but the movie has a little of something (except flatulence) to satisfy just about everyone. It is well cast, smartly written, and effectively directed''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Average ""A merica's Sweethearts" recycles "Singin' in the Rain" but lacks the sassy genius of that 1952 musical, which is still the best comedy ever made about Hollywood.''

The Hollywood Reporter   Full Review
Average "America's Sweethearts racks up enough laughs so you have no qualms about calling it funny. Yet the film leaves you shaking your head over a lost opportunity to make a really great comedy. ..most scenes leave you wanting more -- more sting, more bite, more bitchiness, more lunacy.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

These certainly aren't the highest reviews I've seen, but they aren't bad. I can recommend "America's Sweethearts" since approximately 50% of moviegoers indicated that they enjoyed it very much. The remaining 50% rated it on the low side, but not too low. They at least enjoyed it somewhat. Chances are good that you will also enjoy it, you just may not love it.

When you see this many opinions of "Good/Avg." and lower, it's not the greatest. It indicates a movie that people enjoyed, but not all that much. It's probably not a movie you're going to rush to tell your friends to see, but you probably wouldn't discourage them from seeing it.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
For an awkward, self-conscious girl like Kiki (Julia Roberts), being the personal assistant to a beautiful megastar like Gwen (Catherine Zeta-Jones) isn't easy. But when she dutifully accepts the task of helping Gwen and her estranged megastar husband Eddie (John Cusack) make it through one last public appearance masterminded by legendary press agent Lee Phillips (Billy Crystal), forever devoted Kiki finds that her job is about to get even harder.

At first it seems her biggest challenge is to keep the peace between Eddie and Gwen and their public image intact, but soon Kiki is faced with a more personal concern as her longtime friendship with Eddie begins to take romantic turn.
