One of its most obvious strengths is that it can satisfy many different types of audiences -- those who demand something substantial from their motion pictures, and those who could care less.

Entertainment Weekly
The story is hackneyed, and the gimmick only doubles the dullardry.

Slate
That neither tale is especially interesting doesn't matter -- the contrast alone is enough to make Sliding Doors an irresistible romantic fantasy.

Salon
At least entertaining enough to keep you amused for an hour or two.
63
Boston Globe
You're hooked enough to keep watching, even if the characterizations veer toward the two-dimensional.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Ultimately, Sliding Doors becomes a victim of its own cleverness, shutting down all that early promise.
50
TV Guide Magazine
Dithery, nattering and a bit long for such a conspicuously airy trifle.
50
Chicago Sun-Times
As we switched relentlessly back and forth between A and B, I found that I wasn't looking forward to either story.
40
Film Threat
Kinda makes you think about how important seemingly minor events in life are. Not really.
25
Christian Science Monitor
The gimmick behind the screenplay is clever, but the filmmakers don't rise to the challenge they've set themselves, merely spinning two unimaginative stories for the price of one.
