    I did not like this movie at all. In fact I was pissed off by what I saw transpiring on the screen. I suppose it's possible to tolerate (if not entirely enjoy) Sweet November up to the point where the terminal disease plot device is introduced. The early parts of the film aren't especially well-done, yet, for all of their artifice, they're not unbearable. But the heavy-handed final half-hour, coupled with an astoundingly implausible ending, transforms Sweet November from insubstantial-but-inoffensive to embarrassing. People go to romances to experience the vicarious thrill of participating in someone else's passion, not to endure the kind of leaden paces that this movie puts viewers through. This February release offers many flavors - sour and bitter, in particular - but none of them is sweet. Both the leads Theron and Reeves are adequate and go through the motions. But any actor would have fared similarly. It's the screenplay and plot points which are infuriating.(Overrated and kinda offensive even).

    I have seen this movie almost 15 years and it is one of the most beautifully made movie I've seen.

    I really like these two actors. And they are points in this movie where they are really trying but this movie is really not good. But, if you like Charlize and Keanu, it's worth one view. Apparently it's liked by more than I thought. 76% fan rating. Impressive.

    One of my favorite movies. I hate "critics" and generally dont give their ratings the time of day.

    There's some good stuff in there, but it's just too manipulative, sugary-sweet and implausible to be good. If you're looking for something simple, Keanu and Charlize are decent in it.
