[Boone's] semiautobiographical film is a confident, at times wonderfully nuanced, and often well-paced rewrite of his own parents' divorce.

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

Writer-director Josh Boone populates Stuck in Love with smart characters breaking from emotional holding patterns of varying contours.

The movie's not especially urgent or inventive, but it has small moments of grace ...

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
