It's the kind of total miscalculation that can only be cooked up by a writer of real skill and passion, going all in on a spectacularly bad idea.

In Your Eyes manages to make a grounded, effective and honestly moving romance out of a premise that on it's face seems self-consciously novel.

[A] disposable but not entirely unlikable confection that feels like a first-timer's passion project and not the work of an A-list writer of Whedon's stature.

A nice first step into Whedon's attempt to site his big-budget fantastical ideas into a smaller, more personal film.

It feels more like Nicholas Sparks than Joss Whedon.

For those unshackled by brittle cynicism and willing to play in an imaginary realm far cuter than anything Joss Whedon has come up with before, then In Your Eyes will be a warmhearted delight.

Whedon is beloved for his work in genre film and television ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), but he excels here with a more intimate story.

Think of it as a rom-com version of The Shining, or Nicholas Sparks on a macro-budget.

It's a bit padded, and the ending is trite, but In Your Eyes is a sweetly realized and moving fantasy romance.

The setup never really matures beyond a sentimental teenage fantasy with a TV-caliber climax tacked on ...

It's missing Whedon's trademark zing, but fans who savored the sappier aspects of "Buffy" and "Angel" may find it swoon-worthy.

At its frequent best ... it provides a potent metaphor for a life-changing relationship, cleverly literalizing the way a new romantic connection can feel like a voice in your head that you never want to stop hearing.

It almost seems like a failed TV pilot where they were planning to tell some really cool stories in the first season, but they never ended up writing those episodes.

It has the perfect balance of humour and tenderness, with just a dash of danger and even melodrama on the side.

In Your Eyes isn't a terrible film, it's just familiar, unchallenging, and generic.

Joss Whedon wrote and produced a sweet little supernatural romance for your geeky pleasure, and you don't even have to pirate it: he released it instantly on Vimeo.

A radiant romantic fantasy.

It's not a rousing success, but as a lightweight sketch drawn out to uneven feature-length, it manages to deliver a minor entry in the Whedon canon by keeping its most insightful character-driven ingredients intact.
