Like Crazy

Critics Consensus

It has the schmaltzy trappings of my romantic films, but Like Crazy allows its characters to express themselves beyond dialogue, crafting a true, intimate study.

  • I'll admit that my heart broke a little by film's end, as the camera rested on Yelchin and Jones's faraway looks and Stars' sublime "Dead Hearts" flooded the soundtrack.

  • Felicity Jones shines in Drake Doremus' deceptively simple romance, a refreshing take on an age-old dilemma.

    January 29, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It is poignant and moving, and by the time its last, touchingly incandescent final image flickers into darkness I almost couldn't believe all I had been lucky enough to witness.

    January 27, 2012 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • A good movie which, if not exactly a masterpiece, at least involves us throughout.

    January 27, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Young love's tendresse has seldom seemed quite so irritating as it does in this largely improvised romance...

    January 27, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Apart from everything else, Like Crazy is a reminder of the awful fact that all choices are permanent, to some degree. Life cannot be rewound and done over. It's a grownup love story.

    Wanted to like this, but it just felt like a real nothing movie. I didn't buy the attraction between the pair, which I guess is a major problem for this genre. I didn't really care if they got together or not. To me, they were both cheaters anyhow, so can't have been too madly in love.

    It drags at times, but ultimately the film avoids romance-movie clichés with its excellent acting and interesting plot. The pacing is mostly done well, and I enjoyed the cinematography and the film editing. It's not an entirely memorable film, but it charms despite its obvious flaws.

    I feel that this movie is not for everyone. It happens you know, sometimes a movie is not all about entertainment or forum to express or explore ideas, sometimes a movie can be a film without a story. Like Crazy explores the journey between two young person who met and fall in love instantly during their university years but faced trouble when the girl, who is a UK citizen, got deported back to her country. The movie then continues with their fall about, patching up, breaking up and a very absurd ending, which some will hate, but for the other, like me, will be satisfied with it and ending up giving it a positive review. PS: Choosing Canadian band, Stars' Dead Hearts as their soundtrack was a brilliant choice. 7.8/10.

    Immigration issues and infidelity upset the love of two twenty-somethings. In today's dating climate, things are far more fluid than in times past, and this film captures that fluidity. Whereas films like <i>Love Story</i> and <i>The Way We Were</i> occupy themselves with only the lives of two people and their elliptical orbits around each other, today we often add other people -- other moons -- that interfere with the primary relationship. This is as true in life as it is in this fine film. Strong performances by Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones carry the film, and supporting roles, most notably by Jennifer Lawrence, complement the two leads nicely. There aren't any great, memorable scenes, but the film captures the feeling of this relationship well, and I found myself enjoying getting to know these characters. The story and its central conflict are less compelling than the performances. Immigration issues are real-world problems, and I'm sure that those who experience them find great difficulty, but the don't compel as a central conflict for a film. Also, I found that the film dragged here and there, particularly when the leads were apart. Overall, this is a strong film for this era, but it's not as transcendent as one might hope.
