Critic Reviews for Letters to Juliet

All Critics (151) | Top Critics (36) | Fresh (61) | Rotten (90) | DVD (3)

Not to be a cynic or anything, but maybe a fictional 13-year-old isn't the best source of advice for the lovelorn.

As you might guess, after a great deal of sniping Sophie and Charlie supposedly fall for each other. But the audience never buys it.

An amusing, touching, reassuringly wholesome romantic travelogue of a film that flies by on its way to the inevitable happy ending.

Cinematographer Marco Pontecorvo's sun-drenched palette would be a perfectly sound reason to see this film, but happily it's not the only one.

Letters to Juliet represents an interesting paradox: it is a movie that is very nearly perfect without being especially good.

... while [Vanessa] Redgrave can't cut the clichés out of Letters to Juliet entirely, she at least cuts through them occasionally.

a perfect date movie, with a nice blend of romance and light-hearted comedy

7M Pictures

Not even the ever-likable Seyfried at full-blast sun-kissed luminescence can win the battle against such trite, tired material nor make a viable leading man out of her pretty boy zero of a co-star.

... Succeeds on the basis of pure delight, the optimism it emits and an earned happily-ever-after ending.

If you're in the mood for some school-girl daydream fairytale, Letters to Juliet about fits the bill, but even fans of this sort of thing are likely to find themselves short of patience well before the end.

Formulaic and telegraphic, there are no surprises in this chaste, passionless movie...

It's all rather pleasant, but it's also all rather conventional.

The picture never looks fussed-over or flattened -- it breathes, as opposed to just looking merely pretty.

A gloriously tacky Italian romance.

Letters to Juliet...it's a chick flick thing.

The film unravels in a dispiriting morass of clichés and cringy lines.

A pair of mediocre leading men sabotage this otherwise charming chick flick.

Vanessa Redgrave and the spectacular locales of Tuscany are the main reasons to tolerate the tepid and predictable story...

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

You can guess the whole film but the picture postcard locations are easy on the eye and the wonderful Redgrave steals the show. Her heartfelt conviction and natural warmth slice through all the schmaltz to make the silly storyline feel real and touching.

Daily Express

What kind of twisted fantasy is this?

Full Review… | June 14, 2010

As an antidote to the sugar, what we need now is a grumpy film called Letters to Lady Macbeth, in which malcontents leave rage-filled missives in the battlements of Glamis Castle.

Guardian

Letters From Juliet is far from a great movie. But if you're female or -- like me -- a man with a taste for romance and a fairer deal for our senior citizens, this is one of the year's guiltiest pleasures.

It's hard to convey the sheer awfulness. And that's not just me being a grumpy bloke confronted with a chick flick.

Audience Reviews for Letters to Juliet

½

A very cute romantic movie, good for date night. Not a lot of substance, however. Amanda Seyfried had the sad misfortune of having been immortalized in celluloid before she learned how to act. I guess that kind of makes this film a tragedy?

This is a very predictable movie. Sophie answer a 50-year-old 'Letter to Juliet'. Claire - who is now a grandmother and her cute lawyer-grandson goes looking through the Italian countryside for Claire's long-lost love. If this were a predicable movie, Claire, the Italian oldtimer, Sophie and the lawyer-grandson would all live happily ever-after, right?

a somewhat likable story and characters, but poor acting and serviceable script make this an ok film that feels like too many others in the genre.

Whilst there was a truly heartwarming love story at the centre of this film, it was very Hollywood and I was in no doubt that Claire and Lorenzo would find each other, that Sophie and Charlie would get together, that Charlie would climb the tree and fall off... It was very predictable to the point of being boring and I just didn't like the characters. Bernal gave a good performance as usual but the others lacked talent and charisma. Several glaringly obvious continuity mistakes and terrible acting later, I can safely say this film was not worth my time.
