Aloha starts off in Elizabethtown-esque territory but, perhaps thanks to winning performances or the stunning island scenery, it becomes something better.

Aloha is often surprising, sometimes fun and occasionally tone-deaf. If Cooper, Hawaii and/or slow-building thrillers appeal, then this is recommended despite its flaws.

Aloha is a featherweight concoction that's fuzzy in the head and squishy in the middle. Yes, there's even an obligatory happy couple montage, but the film is also nuanced and eccentric in ways that are very unusual for a studio comedy.

I'll take this romantic movie over a Nicholas Sparks film any day!

It seems less that Crowe's gifts have escaped him than that they've become disproportionate with his excesses, and we're less forgiving of those trespasses.

In [Crowe's] new movie, Aloha, the best of his trademark idiosyncratic banter and character interactions occasionally bubble to the surface.

While there are nagging flaws here and much scope for silliness, it works mostly as [Cameron Crowe] so loves his cast and characters.

There's real romantic chemistry here. Cooper is that rare star that can balance a charmer's lightness and wit with vulnerability and sincerity.

Hawaiian hot mess of a movie with an often unwieldy script, quickly gets under the skin and thanks to its A-list cast is inexplicably and undeniably endearing.

Aloha actually sports a pretty good clutch of storylines, but it just takes too long for them to kick in.

A disposably smooth ride, but you'll need to forgive the misjudged cultural-political military plot (an order that may prove too tall for some).

I actually enjoyed the sprawling messiness of it.

It's the scenes without dialogue that are the most memorable in this warm, likeable film in which issues big and small grapple for attention.

With a bench this deep, it's mathematically impossible for the film not to be entertaining - or, at least, weird in an extremely interesting way. As it happens, Aloha is both.

Safe and sane hip dialogue, beautiful people and a cast to die for drive this rom-com one step ahead of the crowd.

At heart, it's just a romantic comedy, slightly above average in this stagnant genre.
May 29, 2015
It comes at us in choppy bursts of brilliance and dopiness. That is at once its great charm and its great curse.

Life is a mess. Aloha is a moving film about a man who is trying to decide whether to clean his life up.
May 29, 2015
Aloha is a great-looking movie with just enough bright spots to get us past the cloudy moments.

None of this "works." But it usually worked on me.
