Stuck in Love (2013)



Critic Consensus: It struggles to enliven its uneven script, but Stuck in Love boasts enough winning performances from its solid veteran cast to offer an appealing diversion for rom-com enthusiasts.

Movie Info

Three years past his divorce, veteran novelist Bill Borgens (Academy Award (R) nominee Greg Kinnear) can't stop obsessing over, let alone spying on, his ex-wife Erica (Academy Award (R) winner Jennifer Connelly), who ignominiously left him for another man. Even as his neighbor-with-benefits, Tricia (Kristen Bell) tries to push him back into the dating pool, he remains blind to anyone else's charms. Meanwhile, his fiercely independent collegiate daughter Samantha (Lily Collins) is publishing her first novel while recoiling at the very thought of first love with a diehard romantic (Logan Lerman); and his teen son Rusty (Nat Wolff) is trying to find his voice, both as a fantasy writer and as the unexpected boyfriend of a dream girl with unsettlingly real problems. As each of these situations mounts into a tangled trio of romantic holiday crises, it brings the Borgens to surprising revelations about how endings become beginnings. (c) Milleniummore

Perfectly adequate airplane reading.

The story, while unsurprising, is also quietly satisfying. Everyone comes to accept some hard truths about themselves.

Cliched literary trappings come together in "Stuck in Love," but the final product feels more like a footnote than a finished work.

Although "Stuck in Love" is an indie film, it hews slavishly to Hollywood formulas right down to its comfy Thanksgiving Day ending. It's all so easy, isn't it?

Just like most romantic comedies (though this is more of a "rom-dram"), Stuck In Love. believes nothing is worthier than refusing to give up after you've been rebuffed in no uncertain terms.

Worthwhile for its fine performances, including the best work that Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Connelly have done in quite a while.

Audience Reviews for Stuck in Love

Despite the great soundtrack, here is a frustrating movie that shows every sign that it could have been great, with a lot to say about moving on and opening up our hearts to something new, but the payoff is contrived and doesn't ring half as true as what came before it.

Had its moments, but fails to really put it all together.

What a sweet movie! Loved all the characters, the story line, the heart, and the simplicity. I love Greg Kinnear- he has a certain charm to him always! This movie was lovely, genuine, and I absolutely loved the ending message.
