Her is a brilliantly reimagined rom-com, only obliquely interested in its sci-fi setting, which is casually disclosed as the film goes on, never foregrounded.

The film seems very new, but the sentimental ending is as old as the hills. There are some great moments.
February 13, 2014
Whimsical futuro-romance effortlessly evolves into ambiguous, unfathomable hard sci-fi in Spike Jonze's best film to date.

A keeper of a film, quietly dazzling
January 11, 2014
A sublimely original film about human connections that feels personal - yet makes a haunting statement about all of society.
January 10, 2014
It's an odd, sad love story, combined with a meditation on technology as an accelerator of social loneliness. Not a small part of it seems to be an allegory of lonely guys and their fear of women.

In a dark theater, surrounded by the wondrous world Jonze creates in Her, it's difficult to avoid getting emotional.

Her shares a lot of themes with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, another story about the difficulty of moving on from relationships that once seemed destined to last forever.

Delightfully entertaining, if slightly unnerving ...

Her is a wistful, wonderful meditation on where we are and where we might be going.

A stinging romance for our solipsistic techie-centric times.

A lonely young man falls head over keyboard in love with his computer's operating system...It's not just any operating system, but one designed to be empathetic with humans, and has Scarlett Johansson as its Siri-with-sex-appeal voice. Who could resist?

The movie has earned critical acclaim for capturing the zeitgeist of gadget-based narcissism, though it strikes me as the sort of thing made by someone who could use some actual problems to worry about.

Her uses a familiar idea to sci-fi fans - machine sentience - and spins it in a new and exciting direction.
January 8, 2014
The science fiction supports the story without overpowering it (and without forcing you to make those pesky "would this really work?" calculations in your head), and the romance is genuine - even if it's virtual.

Spike Jonze doesn't simply direct. He innovates.

Her is a remarkably ingenious film but, more important, it is a film that transcends its own ingenuity to achieve something akin to wisdom.
December 26, 2013
The best things in the movie aren't transporting or diverting but merely incite intellectual recognition: Yes. OK. That's amusing.
December 24, 2013
Filmed with a bright crispness that speaks of a nostalgia for the future, "Her" is a touching, buoyant pleasure.

You've heard of fables for our time? "Her" is a fable for the near future.
