Critic Reviews for Irreplaceable You

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5)

The film itself seems to be in denial about its own story.

February 16, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The movie, directed by Stephanie Laing, tries too hard and too implausibly to fulfill what proves an uncomfortable, unworkable concept.

February 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Wohl never manages to achieve the proper tonal blend. The result is neither sufficiently funny nor moving, lacking the truly daring humor that might have made the film a bracing dark comedy.

February 15, 2018 | Full Review…

A half-baked tragic love story so desperately engineered to tear-jerk that it ceases to resemble anything human.

February 15, 2018 | Full Review…

"Irreplaceable You" uses an assortment of slight incidents to impart a lesson that, from the outset, is patently obvious to everyone except the too-dim-to-be-believed person for whom it's intended.

Top Critic

Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Michiel Huisman tug fiercely at our heartstrings with their charming portrayals of two people who fell in love as they grew up together and now face the terminal illness of Mbatha-Raw's character.
