Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Pete Segall
Brad Anderson's Next Stop Wonderland is an incredibly tender, likeable romantic comedy -- with most of the emphasis on romance. Hope Davis is Erin, a night nurse and Harvard Med dropout who is dumped by her Marxist schlump of a boyfriend Philip Seymour Hoffman, in pre-"Indie It Boy" form and has a slightly overstated personal ad taken out on her behalf by her well-meaning but meddling mother Holland Taylor. In the avalanche of would-be suitors that follows, Erin meets a broke, good-natured plumber Alan Gelfant studying to be a marine biologist, and the two embark on a leisurely will-they-or-won't-they collision course. Anderson and Lyn Vaus's script is low-key and talky, but their collective ear for dialogue is dead-on. Nothing stilted here. But the best thing about Next Stop Wonderland is Hope Davis, beautiful in a reserved way, quietly charming, and very smart: the sort of girl well-worth making a movie about.
All Movie Guide
In a time-worn formula, Next Stop Wonderland thrusts its two sympathetic characters into the same hellish dating world, forever one step away from meeting each other, until destiny finally gives them a break. While this structure grows cloying in some films, such as 1997's 'Til There Was You, here it's redeemed by an indie talkiness that makes the whole outing more cerebral than a typical romantic comedy might. But it's still light on its feet, due both to the naturalistic writing and the influence of the two charming leads, Hope Davis and Alan Gelfant. Their earnest goodness is actually fun to watch, and it underscores the shallowness of the other specimens in the dating pool, only slightly caricatured for effect. There's some good screwball humor here, too -- a lot of the minimal drama surrounds whether Gelfant's goodhearted marine biologist should whack a fish. Director Brad Anderson brings Boston, where the film was shot, to vivid life, setting several scenes in haunts that are popular with real Boston twentysomethings. The film's title comes from a station on the blue line of Boston's subway system, otherwise known as "the T."
