Stuck in Love Reviews

Harvey S. Karten
Compuserve

Starts sit-comish but as it becomes more complex it takes on a somewhat literary tone.

Shadows on the Wall

So contrived and tidy that it's not remotely believable.

Slant Magazine

The movie aims for an admirable balance, but fatally upsets that equilibrium in its hurried resolutions.

Observer [UK]

The film has its sharp moments but is invariably glib when it comes to literary matters and the relationship between books and life.

Movie Talk

Given that it deals with a spectacularly dysfunctional family, writer-director Josh Boone's romantic comedy-drama Stuck in Love is surprisingly warm-hearted and cosy.

Irish Times

This is the heartfelt indie-schmindie piece that The Perks of Being a Wallflower desperately wanted to be but wasn't.

This is London

First-time director Josh Boone gets performances from his cast but fails to make the story about first loves and second chances work.

Karen Krizanovich
Radio Times

writer/director Josh Boone has made a quiet romantic fantasy, complete with downbeat indie soundtrack, which in its own way is as unrealistic as any blockbuster but a perfectly pleasant watch.

The List

This is tedious fare. Best avoided.

Graham Young
Birmingham Mail

Hugely watchable from the shock beginning through to the clever mix of end-of-lifecycle events and renewed opportunities ( ... ) a class above what passes for the average romcom today.

Tim Robey
Daily Telegraph

This is Kinnear's best role in a few years, and Connelly's, too: her attempts to win back Collins's stroppy prodigy have an emotional generosity her acting has lacked lately.

David Jenkins
Little White Lies

Boone does little to convince that these characters are genuinely sensitive, intellectually superior, or more importantly, that their talents play any real part in alleviating/causing their worldly stresses.

ViewLondon

Enjoyable and engaging relationship comedy drama enlivened by likeable performances, a strong script and some appealing location work, though it's also a little too pretentious for its own good in places.

Andy Lea
Daily Star

It all plays out a bit like a feature-length episode of Dawson's Creek - pretty teenagers wandering around romantic locations spouting over-written dialogue.

Peter Bradshaw
Guardian

The sharp edges of the story are sentimentally sanded down; there's a fair bit of slush, and it's a pretty quaint view of what writers and a writer's life are actually like.

Full Review Source: Guardian | Original Score: 2/5

Tim Evans
Sky Movies

Unfashionably un-cynical, it's a labour of familial love from first-time writer-director Josh Boone whose simple style well serves a story of sweetness and wit.

Emma Johnston
Total Film

A sweet little study of the right royal mess people can make of relationships when they let their own neuroses take over, and a warm tribute to overcoming them.

The Popcorn Junkie

As dysfunctional as its family of scribblers despite tiny bites of charm from the cast

Ed Gibbs
The Sunday Age

A sweet tale of love, loss and life with solid performances from a first-rate cast.

May 19, 2013

A tough, well-etched portrait of the damage a broken marriage can wreak.
