It's Hawke, though, who inevitably steals the show, tempering Tucker's uselessness with humanity and humility.

Instantly forgettable and decidedly twee.
September 6, 2018
Even if it's one of the lesser Hornby adaptations, it's still engaging and intelligent about the human condition.
September 4, 2018
Unlike mainstream romantic comedies, this one comes with weightier issues and doesn't fill up its screen time with inane tangents and dumb jokes.
August 31, 2018
Open-hearted and sure to resonate with more than a few viewers, Juliet, Naked roms and coms in the most charmingly honest ways.
August 31, 2018
It's got heart and laughs in equal measure, and it sings a sweet, sweet song.
August 30, 2018
The plot is really secondary to the piece, which is not something I'd ever expect to say about a work conceived by Nick Hornby.
August 30, 2018
Juliet, Naked doesn't have much of value to say about contemporary relationships, at least nothing that Hornby hasn't already worked to death, but it's generally good-humored.

You have to swallow a lot to buy into "Juliet, Naked" - including the preposterous notion that anyone could ignore Rose Byrne - but the direction and the playing turn it into comfort food.

"Juliet, Naked" is basically what would happen if you put "Almost Famous" and "You've Got Mail" in a blender and then poured the contents out in a picturesque English seaside town; none of which is a terrible idea.

Like Ethan Hawke, Rose Byrne is an actor who can do just about anything when given the opportunity.

There's just something special here.
August 24, 2018
Unusual for a rom-com these days, it actually manages to be both romantic and comedic.
August 23, 2018
The narrative holds interest...for its meaningful reflections on midlife crises, fandom, and Gen-X nostalgia.
August 21, 2018
A sweet-tart confection that, like lemon sorbet, cleanses a palate gone sour from too many cinematic servings of the heavy stuff.
August 20, 2018
If you like Hornby's work, you'll like "Juliet, Naked." If you don't? Well, the soundtrack is pretty swell, and it's really great to see Rose Byrne get a chance to shine.
August 20, 2018
Nick Hornby's 2009 novel about rock fandom run amuck is annoyingly hit-and-miss on screen, but partly saved by the vibrant acting of Chris O'Dowd, Ethan Hawke and the glorious Rose Byrne.

The story's predictable arc doesn't leave enough to the imagination, and like Annie, we might start hoping for change just to shake things up in this sleepy plot.
Top Critic

What beguiles, aside from the winning performances, are the movie's generous spirit, shifting tone, and wealth of quickly sketched yet sufficiently realized supporting characters.
August 16, 2018
A charming film of an engaging, adult nature about two very different people trying to press reset in their lives, it is comic, heartfelt and smart as they come - a rare combination these days.
