Take a supernatural premise, sap cinematic magic of any kind and the result is Sliding Doors.

Deft enough to keep you wondering whether it's going to end on Track A or Track B.

Gwyneth Paltrow is engaging as the two Helens, and I have no complaints about her performance. Pity about the screenplay.

Give the movie credit for being a different sort of romantic comedy, but still one has to regret the failure of imagination.

If you can let plausibility slide, this tale of two simultaneous realities... will be a fun ride.

The film never lays claim to been anything other than a romantic comedy, never lapses into smugness at its own cleverness and relies on the simple effectiveness of the gimmick.

Ultimately, Sliding Doors becomes a victim of its own cleverness, shutting down all that early promise.

It's not so much the tale itself as the slippery interplay between characters that makes Sliding Doors enjoyable.

Worth sticking with to the very end, if only to unravel some intriguing twists and turns not normally encountered in such kissy-kissy fare.
