Sweet November

Critics Consensus

Schmaltzy and manipulative, Sweet November suffers from an implausible plot and non-existent chemistry between its leads.

Movie Info

Nelson Moss (Keanu Reeves) and Sara Deever (Charlize Theron) have nothing in common except an hour spent in DMV hell. Intrigued by each other, but not quite ready to commit, they settle on a rather unconventional courtship: a one-month trial, after which they'll go their separate ways. No expectations. No pressure. No strings attached. What neither of them counts on is falling in love.

    GAAAHHH!!! Really? Never has cancer-stricken-woman-lives-life-to-the-fullest been so...real. There's a special place in my heart for "A Walk to Remember," but it's admittedly saccharine and melodramatic. "Sweet November" may make you feel gooey, but the characters live in a pretty harsh and diverse world. Jason Isaacs and Michael Rosenbaum play delightful supporting characters of the loving drag queen couple next door. Charlize Theron has the rare ability/beauty? to ground a quirky character, and Keanu Reeves is, well, stone-faced enough to portray emotionless at first, then dazed with grief later. The 12 Gifts of Christmas bit is so hokey, but you just have to roll with Keanu trying to be manic and cute. And double props for the movie ending right where it needed to.

    She Just Needed A Month To Change His Life For Ever. Very good movie and great acting from Keanu and Theron. The story is very original, romantic and melancholic. "The meaning of life, is to give life meaning." I think that is the message of this movie. Too many times people get wrapped up in stuff and glitz and all technology and everything else we have in this life that we forget that in the end... all we have is each other. For romantic suckers this is a must see movie, enjoy! Nelson is a man devoted to his advertising career in San Francisco. One day, while taking a driving test at the DMV, he meets Sara. She is very different from the other women in his life. Nelson causes her to miss out on taking the test and later that day she tracks him down. One thing leads to another and Nelson ends up living with her through a November that will change his life forever.

    Just flat out corny and sappy. It's a romantic comedy with a kicker, one of them is dying and it's not the one you want to die. Keanu Reeves was especially bad and it's easily Charlize Theron's worst performance. I mainly blame this on the audacity of the writers, but it still should've never seen the light of day.
