Critic Reviews for The Love Letter
The Force isn't with, nor is there much dramatic force behind The Love Letter!
It wants to revel in rapture and grand illusions and timeless dreams, yet its vision of love is overly graphed out and willed.
A mild and likable enough romantic comedy.
Filled with surprising bursts of wit and charm!
The Love Letter transports the recipe from Hollywood to New England and turns it into the kind of flavorful clambake that defines summer escapist entertainment.
Audience Reviews for The Love Letter
★★ (out of four) A bland and uneven romantic comedy that aspires to be warm and whimsical, but falls flat. None of the characters are very interesting and all the actors seem pretty bored by the preceedings. Kate Capshaw plays Helen, the owner of a bookstore in a small New England coastal town. Her friend from high school (Tom Selleck) has been in love with her for years but is afraid to tell her. She is also the object of the affections of a young man (Tom Everett Scott), who is half her age. One day an unsigned love letter shows up at her store. It is romantic and moves her. Before long, the entire town is obssessed with find out who authored the letter. [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v48/Zeppo1/LoveLetterThe.jpg[/IMG]
I actually enjoyed this movie. I admit I did have to start it over once about 10 minutes into the movie because I wasn't really paying attention and so I didn't know what was going on. The character of Johnny did make me uncomfortable though with how posessive and pushy he seemed to be. It certainly wasn't a brilliant movie but it was quirky.
Just okay. I watched for Ellen and Tom Selleck and they were both very loveable.
