I hated, hated, hated these people and despise writer-director Drake Doremous for wasting a brutally overlong 89 minutes of my life with them.

November 24, 2013 uneven endeavor from a promising new filmmaker...

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.

A well-made film with two strong leads that never fully appreciates the romance at its core.

"Are you a romantic or a realist? Like Crazy is the rare romantic drama made for both."
Jeff Beck
September 18, 2012
The performances from Yelchin and Jones are admirable, but they just don't have much to work with as their characters are underwritten and underdeveloped.

Like Crazy manages to capture the elusive whimsy of first love, only to beat it to death with a tedious on again/off again love story and two main characters obstinately selfish and mundane.

This likeable low budget American indi is kept fresh by Yelchin and Jones who are endearing as the star-crossed lovers.

It's more like a series of sentimental greeting cards suitable at differing stages of a relationship, from sparkling first love to broken relationship to marriage and out of it ... The screenplay is rather formless and for the most part, tedious.

It makes what could have been a sweet and involving tour de force into a rather heavy-handed drama
Rebecca Barry Hill
February 9, 2012
Managing to keep melodrama at a distance, it's nonetheless impossible not to get swept up in the relationship.

This film not only provides an effective love story. It goes well beyond that to examine the way believable characters deal with problems resulting from forced separation due to immigration policies.

The film fails to explore each's new partners, and while leaving the focus on the central relationship isn't always a bad thing, when main duo fail to captivate in their own right, it feels a misstep not to have expanded the narrative.

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

It would be a good date movie for a couple on the point of breaking up.
Shaun Munro
What Culture
January 29, 2012
The deeply-felt chemistry between Felicity Jones and Anton Yelchin helps Like Crazy to capture the tragic ironies of young love in a diverting, mature, and ultimately heartbreaking manner.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

As so many others have done before, Drake Doremus captures the giddy excitement of courtship; what makes his film more unusual is that he then hangs around to observe the nitty-gritty of making the ensuing relationship work.

London Evening Standard
January 27, 2012
A good movie which, if not exactly a masterpiece, at least involves us throughout.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Young love's tendresse has seldom seemed quite so irritating as it does in this largely improvised romance...
