By the time Emma realizes that something might be wrong with her playful, pajama-clad paramour, there are so many red flags she might as well be at a communist rally.

[Waiting for Forever is] strangely unaware of its overt creepiness.

Waiting for Forever isn't just bad; it's fascinatingly bad.

Slant Magazine

When not indulging in nostalgic flipbook-style flashbacks, director Keach shoots his material with sub-sitcom flatness, and regularly returns to the indie-balladeer well to amplify the mawkishness.

Director James Keach's movie is so annoyingly dipsy-doodle that TV veteran Bilson, trying hard to look haunted and angsty, is boxed in.

An indistinct romantic-dramedy-ish something or other.

A drippy romance that makes Nicholas Sparks look like Leo Tolstoy.

It's not a love story. It's a stalker story.

A movie that eludes the viewer's grasp, because it's arguing a position auds will find instinctively wrong.

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.

With "Waiting for Forever," an insipid contemporary fairy tale about a lovestruck young vagabond shadowing a childhood sweetheart he can't bring himself to approach, we get stalking, juggling and cancer. Happy Valentine's Day!

"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.

An ill-conceived romantic drama that's as sappy, vague and awkward as its title.

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.

As annoyingly nonsensical as its title, this film makes a would-be compassionate case for-wait for it-stalkers.

A suggestion to screenwriters: Stop telling stalkers that their passion isn't misplaced and that the girl will come around in the end. It is, and she won't.
