Letters to Juliet (2010)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Letters to Juliet has a refreshingly earnest romantic charm, but it suffers from limp dialogue and an utter lack of surprises.

When a young American travels to the city of Verona, home of the star-crossed lover Juliet Capulet of Romeo and Juliet fame, she joins a group of volunteers who respond to letters to Juliet seeking advice about love. When she answers one letter dated 1957, she inspires its author to travel to Italy in search of her long-lost love and sets off a chain of events that will bring a love into both their lives, unlike anything they ever imagined.

Not to be a cynic or anything, but maybe a fictional 13-year-old isn't the best source of advice for the lovelorn.

As you might guess, after a great deal of sniping Sophie and Charlie supposedly fall for each other. But the audience never buys it.

An amusing, touching, reassuringly wholesome romantic travelogue of a film that flies by on its way to the inevitable happy ending.

Cinematographer Marco Pontecorvo's sun-drenched palette would be a perfectly sound reason to see this film, but happily it's not the only one.

Letters to Juliet represents an interesting paradox: it is a movie that is very nearly perfect without being especially good.

Audience Reviews for Letters to Juliet

A very cute romantic movie, good for date night. Not a lot of substance, however. Amanda Seyfried had the sad misfortune of having been immortalized in celluloid before she learned how to act. I guess that kind of makes this film a tragedy?

This is a very predictable movie. Sophie answer a 50-year-old 'Letter to Juliet'. Claire - who is now a grandmother and her cute lawyer-grandson goes looking through the Italian countryside for Claire's long-lost love. If this were a predicable movie, Claire, the Italian oldtimer, Sophie and the lawyer-grandson would all live happily ever-after, right?

a somewhat likable story and characters, but poor acting and serviceable script make this an ok film that feels like too many others in the genre.
