The film opens with a soldier and nurse getting out of two 1940-style cars in the middle of night.Bosworth's acting was praised for holding the film together.Carla Meyer regarded the film as being tonally inconsistent, from being a retro romantic comedy to a modern (albeit gentle) satire, pointing out in particular the character played by Goodwin as going from wondering if Hamilton is at church to propositioning Hamilton.Stephen Holden regards the film as having a plot from the 1950s, "dressed up just enough to seem contemporary".Holden regards Bosworth as having the toughest part, showing Rosalee's "feet-on-the-ground optimism and innate wisdom" easily.
