"Waiting for Forever" evidently is an attempt to portray love as purest when expressed by those who are most innocent, untainted by the ugliness of the real world. But it misses the mark completely, coming off instead as creepy.

More often than not, I felt suffocated by the gaseous sentimentality and lightheadedness of a story that drops in subplots that it can't begin to develop.
Director James Keach's movie is so annoyingly dipsy-doodle that TV veteran Bilson, trying hard to look haunted and angsty, is boxed in.
As annoyingly nonsensical as its title, this film makes a would-be compassionate case for-wait for it-stalkers.
If your idea of a great Valentine's Day is to ring up your secret beloved and breathe heavily into the phone, this is the movie for you.
Audience Reviews for Waiting for Forever
- Will: I'm gonna tel her that I love her. That I've always loved her. That in my dreams, I breathe her in, I inhale her and I feel her right here. Here in the blood in my heart.
- Will: There's a moment in everybody's life when you're hopeless, just hopeless with hope and trust. And then something happens, something too big to understand, and then everything changes.
- Will: Bad love letters beg for love back. Good love letters ask for nothing.
- Will: Truth is nothing. What you believe to be true is everything.
