So nondescript that its anonymity becomes its very personality.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

...the film ultimately earns a place for itself within the pantheon of effectively stirring romantic tearjerkers.

A movie that looks and sounds a whole lot bigger than it actually is.

While it may be discerned as more a vehicle for the actors' reunion than a creative gem, the contributive factor to its attractiveness is the chemistry of the match.

You could have filmed zombies in a gorgeous 19th century beach house and gotten the same emotional impact.

Even if you are rooting for this film to succeed, you find yourself sitting through the tear-jerking part of the movie without feeling terribly wrapped up in it.
| Original Score: 63/100

Nights in Rodanthe is the cinematic equivalent of a Harlequin novel with a pack of tissues shoved into the back cover.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

The actors once again work well together, but they should have quit when they were ahead.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

Diane Lane and the Tuscan countryside prove to be a more dynamic duo than Diane Lane and the Outer Banks.

Bring tissues.

I will say this about Nights in Rodanthe: spoken Nicholas Sparks is preferable to written Nicholas Sparks.
| Original Score: 0.5/4

Strictly for romantic masochists. Enough tears in the final reel to fill a Hollywood producer's swimming pool.

While not for the cynical or hard-of-heart, Nights in Rodanthe is something of a rarity: a film that puts its characters first.
Vicky Roach
Daily Telegraph (Australia)

A singularly unsuccessful look at mature love.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

You can make a good movie out of schmaltz. This isn't one of them.

Something about Diane Lane's performance, especially in that third act, really got me involved in the film emotionally.

Most of the movie was cloying. All of it was predictable.
Louise Keller

You will get exactly what you are expecting. More or less, in any event. More in the case of the film's heart; less in the case of the last reel, when the storyline and execution dissolves into buckets of schmaltz.
Linda Cook

You know,s ometimes a movie is worth it just because of its texture.

If the story is a dreary one, it is elevated by the star brio of Gere and Lane.
