Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average "Laws of Attraction" isn't a terrible film, but there's nothing that's memorable or extraordinary - indeed, quite the opposite is true. Formulaic romantic comedies can provide a degree of pleasure when there's a spark between the two leads. However, where "Laws of Attraction" is concerned, all but the most ardent of Brosnan's admirers will find this to be an uninspired round in the cinematic battle of the sexes.
Roger EbertFull Review Average Now these two actors are perfectly lovable people, and so we are happy for them, and enjoy watching them and listening to them, but this is a movie, not an audition, and they really deserved more from the director, Peter Howitt and co-writers Aline Brosh McKenna and Robert Harling, who among them come up with less than one serviceable screenplay.
USA TodayFull Review Average Early on, it seems that "Laws" might defy its derivative limitations. The movie gets out of the gate quickly, but once the story elements fall into place, the movie slows, and the pace seems seven steps slower than the brisk opening scenes.

High-powered New York divorce attorneys Daniel Rafferty (Pierce Brosnan) and
Audrey Woods (Julianne Moore) have seen love gone wrong in all its worst case
scenarios – so how bad could their own chances be?
At the top of their respective games, Audrey and Daniel are a classic study
in opposites. She practices law strictly by the book; he always manages to win
by the seat of his pants. But soon they're pitted against each other on
opposite sides of a nasty public divorce between famous clients (Parker Posey
and Michael Sheen), with the case centering on an Irish castle which each future
divorcee has their sights set on. Audrey and Daniel travel to Ireland to chase
down separate depositions, yet the two lawyers, who have slowly been developing
a mutual attraction that neither wants to acknowledge, find themselves thrown
together at a romantic Irish country festival. Naturally, after a night of wild
celebrating, they wake up the next morning as man and wife. Now they have to
return to New York to carry on with their surprising new situation and the
ongoing court case.
