Letters to Juliet (2010)



Critic Consensus: Letters to Juliet has a refreshingly earnest romantic charm, but it suffers from limp dialogue and an utter lack of surprises.

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

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.

Full Review… | April 8, 2012

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

Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)

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.

Audience Reviews for Letters to Juliet


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.

Letters to Juliet Quotes

Charlie: No, no, no, because you see if I found the love of my life, I wouldn't stand there like an idiot whispering in the garden. I would just grab her from that blasted balcony and be done with it.

Sophie: You can't go on forever, some point you have to stop.
Charlie: Then why is it that I feel like a school boy on Sunday? It's nearly tomorrow and I don't want to go.
Sophie: Me either. And I always liked school.

Claire: Don't wait fifty years like I did. Go, go, go!

Claire: I think you understand why I'm telling you you're a total idiot.
Charlie: Okay, okay, then don't sugarcoat it gran.
Claire: I won't. How many Sophie's do you think there are on this planet?
