For everyone who's grown tired of the summer onslaught of superheroes, save-the-world plots and explosions, Hollywood finally offers some decent counter-programming in the form of the brainy romance One Day.

Ends better than it begins -- or middles.

I couldn't help but feel the film was lent shades of colour by the book; colour that simply doesn't exist on the screen. I projected 435 pages of joy onto a film that probably didn't deserve it.

An average romantic dramedy, 'One Day' tips its hand so early in the game that you won't be a bit surprised by anything that ensues.

December 7, 2011 can't help feeling this dreary tale could have done with a bit of fancy editing or narrative reconstruction.

The most entertaining and engrossing romantic film to hit theaters in ages...

The leads work well together but are held back by cheap sentimentalism when we should be on a journey with the characters.

Such a simple and small premise would and should yield a simple and small movie -- something not so heavy and epic, but more lovely and amazing.

Sherfig's visual knack is better than she realizes; she should stop dressing it up within an inch of its life.

The Age (Australia)
September 2, 2011
Danish director Lone Scherfig (An Education) deliberately veers away from comedy to deliver a surprisingly earthy, soulful romance.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

It's a profoundly moving book. Still, the movie is strangely remote, and straining for tears.

A frothy cappuccino of a film with lots of tears, quivering lips and cathartic embraces and little substance.

It doesn't quite deliver on its promise, but this remains a witty, touching and largely enjoyable adaptation.

September 2, 2011
What should've been an epic romance, a challenger to The Notebook, becomes a melancholy, disconnected drama, despite the talent on display.

The most desperate, cloying weepie seen in many a long time.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

The story is told in a very episodic manner, but Lone Scherfig crafts it well and the film is well edited to keep it feeling as one. It feels exciting and unexpected, even though you know really it never is.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

There's not really a chance to go very deep here, but the two leads are so strong that they make us believe in them anyway.

Despite the patchiness and the heavily signposted and melodramatic plot points, One Day concludes magnificently.

It doesn't really work. I still cried.

You are hereby advised to ignore the bad reviews and check out this fairly stunning meditation on life, love, and friendship.
