The comedy is definitely there, but a heavy romantic focus drags it down in parts.

It's bogged down in too many squishy romantic-comedy pieties.

While there is nothing wrong with a comedy engaging in religious satire, neither Gervais nor Robinson seems willing to take on the topic thoughtfully.

Despite the ambitious scope of its premise, this confounding, disappointing and, in the end, depressing movie is content to devote 80 percent of its screen time to wondering who gets to kiss the girl.

The premise is clever but the film is not bold enough

Light and disposable entertainment to be sure, but that trademark dry Gervais wit keeps the proceedings engaging enough.

There are cycles of inspiration and rebirth, but the barbed promise of the early going loses its way in choices aimed at sentimentality rather than, as Harvey Kurtzman memorably put it, humor in a jugular vein.

The last third of the movie is as bad as anything I've seen this year, with the laughs trailing off, and half of the supporting characters, the zestier ones, being airbrushed from the frame.

Gervais' satiric barbs on religion, beauty, disillusionment and the basic human need for hope aim for our comfort zones, and they all hit home.

I think the first half hour would be almost impossible to sustain because it is so inspired.

As mildly amusing as it can be in places, it still won't convince non-fans that Gervais can play anything other than the fool.

That a great comic idea does not necessarily make for a great screen comedy is the lesson for first-time writer-director-star Ricky Gervais as he comes unstuck.
