| Original Score: 2/4
Filled with surprising bursts of wit and charm!
The Love Letter transports the recipe from Hollywood to New England and turns it into the kind of flavorful clambake that defines summer escapist entertainment.
Capshaw is cold and charmless!
Where it should soar with humor or longing, it merely skips along -- a stream of surprising and somewhat forced revelations.
Bland dialogue and dull sitcom acting!
If only there were something sharp and pungent - besides Ellen DeGeneres' wisecracks - to keep you from drifting off.
A romantic comedy of much charm and wisdom!
A scattershot account of unexpected, confusing romantic love that spreads like a virus!
| Original Score: 1/4
Although the movie's affection for its characters is refreshing, none of them stirs our passions.
A nice old-fashioned romance -- how refreshing.
| Original Score: 3/4
It wants to revel in rapture and grand illusions and timeless dreams, yet its vision of love is overly graphed out and willed.
| Original Score: C
In a no-role role, Mr. Selleck appears beefy and dull.
You're left wishing you'd never opened this letter.
The Force isn't with, nor is there much dramatic force behind The Love Letter!
| Original Score: 2.5/4
A mild and likable enough romantic comedy.
An especially affecting love story!
