I lost count of how many times "That's Amore" turned up on the soundtrack, and the comic situations are so stale that the whole thing plays like a Scandinavian Tyler Perry movie.

At the heart of this formulaic bore is the potential for a far more interesting story.

The movie seems to drift instead of sail. But when you're a grown-up, you realize it's not about the destination, but the journey.

While this is hardly Bier at her best, the agreeable leads, lovely locale and tweaking of romantic comedy conventions make the film more engaging than one might expect.

Brosnan is good, and he and Dyrholm erase any and all signs of contrivance in the plot, the script.

This is a mature rom-com, if that's not a contradiction in terms.

Adult sophistication is Bier's aim, and she delivers.

Despite the excess cheese atop the story, the setting in the birthplace of pizza gives "Love Is All You Need" a satisfying finish.

The good intentions on display here aren't worth much without a little more originality and verve.

Coffee-table harmlessness.

Bier spices up the long-hackneyed generic formula with lush location cinematography, outstanding performances ... and subtitles, but otherwise the movie needs a lot more than love.

Bier's first English-language film deals in the same dumbed-down wish fulfillment peddled by standard American studio fare. What's the Danish word for "Sarah Jessica Parker"?

It's lesser Bier, spotlighting an intentional creative move to reach the wider audience she deserves. It's perfect for the rainy day rental, but any expectations beyond that are bound to be crushed.

Has nothing to do with The Beatles' 'All You Need Is Love.' Based on the movie's low quantity of romance, it may as well be called The Walrus I Am.

It's thanks to a calming Italian setting and amiable chemistry between its leads that the film is able to rise above its conventional setup and sometimes erratic and convoluted plot developments.

The whole of "Love Is All You Need" makes me want to book a plane to Italy's Amalfi Coast for a long vacation.
