A gloriously tacky Italian romance.

As an antidote to the sugar, what we need now is a grumpy film called Letters to Lady Macbeth, in which malcontents leave rage-filled missives in the battlements of Glamis Castle.

Seyfried acts like she's spaced out on limoncello in a role even Kate Hudson would have turned down.

Not to be a cynic or anything, but maybe a fictional 13-year-old isn't the best source of advice for the lovelorn.
May 14, 2010
As you might guess, after a great deal of sniping Sophie and Charlie supposedly fall for each other. But the audience never buys it.
May 14, 2010
An amusing, touching, reassuringly wholesome romantic travelogue of a film that flies by on its way to the inevitable happy ending.
May 14, 2010
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.
May 14, 2010
Letters to Juliet represents an interesting paradox: it is a movie that is very nearly perfect without being especially good.

... while [Vanessa] Redgrave can't cut the clichés out of Letters to Juliet entirely, she at least cuts through them occasionally.

Save yourself 10 bucks, and an hour and 45 minutes of your precious time.
May 14, 2010
The story is as straight and obvious as raw spaghetti.
May 14, 2010
Redgrave brings a lovely gravity to the lightweight proceedings, while Seyfried again proves an unusually levelheaded presence.
May 13, 2010
Its cast is remarkably strong for such simple fare. Cynics will mock it, but it's an undeniable crowd pleaser even if its resolution drags on too long.
May 13, 2010
Redgrave is incandescent, and casting Franco Nero as Lorenzo was inspired.
May 13, 2010
Letters to Juliet is a by-the-numbers romantic comedy -- and I mean that in a good way.
May 13, 2010
There are worse ways to spend a couple of hours. Set in some stunning locales in Italy, Letters is a guilty pleasure that's lighter on the guilt and heavier on the pleasure.
May 13, 2010
As the genre goes, this is a superior offering. It gives the first clear evidence that the doe-eyed Seyfried can really act; it soothes the eyes with luscious views of beautiful Tuscany in all its moods...
May 13, 2010
In a word, Letters to Juliet is rubbish, but Seyfried and Redgrave make it tolerable in their different ways.
May 13, 2010
What's important is that it avoids the unfunny jokiness and juvenile tendencies that define too many romantic comedies while also sidestepping the mawkishness of the Nicolas Sparks-inspired dramas.
