Critic Reviews for How He Fell in Love

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (9)

  • Meyers must have been truly in love with his story to carry it all the way to development. But for anyone else who watches the film, it will be hard to remember it as anything more than a brief, middling affair.

  • More sort-of character study than passionate exploration of an affair, How He Fell in Love is a rather one-sided relationship.

    Aug 4, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Despite Travis and Ellen's breezy, walk-and-talk chemistry, Meyers wisely prizes the moments when the two are trading wordless glances, trying to decipher each other's in turn.

  • Despite how much these characters go on and on about their lives and loves, the film itself has nothing to say.

  • We bend over backward to find joy in this movie, but, like eager yogis striving to achieve an impossible asana, we just can't do it.

    Jul 14, 2016 | Full Review…
  • A courageously mundane character study that aims to show people as they really are, rather than the gauzy movie version that we all want our lives to be.
