Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Definitely, Maybe is a good date movie - not only because of the warm, fuzzy feelings it engenders but because it does so without demeaning the audience's intelligence.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average When it comes to likable stories about love and the various ups and downs involved in finding it, Definitely, Maybe edges over into a cautious yes.

OPINION GRAPH

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

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 178 moviegoers:
CHILDREN: The four children loved it. However, they were likely older children since this movie isn't going to keep younger children entertained.
TEENS:Both the males and the females rated "Definitely, Maybe" very high. With half rating it "Excellent" or higher and just a few rating it as low as "Good/Average," this is a movie I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:GREAT REVIEWS, especially from the ladies! The male reviews were quite a bit lower but still very good considering the type of story this is. Most guys rated it, at least, above average and a third really enjoyed it. "Definitely, Maybe" would make a great date movie.
ADULTS:Both the male and female reviews were great! Approximately three-quarters rated it very high. Most of the remaining quarter also enjoyed it, but only rated it "Good/Average." Only a few rated it below average. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Will Hayes (Ryan Reynolds), a 30-something Manhattan dad in the midst of a divorce, is surprised when his 10-year-old daughter, Maya (Abigail Breslin), starts to question him about his life before marriage. Maya wants to know absolutely everything about how her parents met and fell in love.

His story begins in 1992, as a young, starry-eyed aspiring politician who moves to New York from Wisconsin in order to work on the presidential campaign. For Maya, Will relives his past as an idealistic young man learning the ins and outs of big city politics, and recounts the history of his romantic relationships with three very different women.

Will hopelessly attempts a gentler version of his story for his daughter and changes the names so Maya has to guess who is the woman her dad finally married. Is her mother Will's college sweetheart, the dependable girl-next-door Emily (Banks)? Is she his longtime best friend and confidante, the apolitical April (Antwone Fisher)? Or is she the free-spirited but ambitious journalist Summer (Rachel Weisz)?

As Maya puts together the pieces of her dad's mystery love story, she begins to understand that love is not so simple or easy. And as Will tells her his tale, Maya helps him understand that it's definitely never too late to go back...and maybe find a happy ending.
