"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.

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

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!

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.

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

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.

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

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

An indistinct romantic-dramedy-ish something or other.
