Laughs are ten-a-penny and thought-provocation is no great shakes, but if you can stir-up someone's emotions and get the tears flowing freely then your creation is worth a damn. For the last 20-minutes of One Day, I was a weeping wreck.

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.
December 1, 2011
The most entertaining and engrossing romantic film to hit theaters in ages...
September 8, 2011
Sherfig's visual knack is better than she realizes; she should stop dressing it up within an inch of its life.
September 2, 2011
Danish director Lone Scherfig (An Education) deliberately veers away from comedy to deliver a surprisingly earthy, soulful romance.
September 2, 2011
It doesn't quite deliver on its promise, but this remains a witty, touching and largely enjoyable adaptation.
September 2, 2011
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.

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.
August 31, 2011
Despite the patchiness and the heavily signposted and melodramatic plot points, One Day concludes magnificently.
August 30, 2011
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.
August 27, 2011
A bittersweet love story. Due to its fragmented structure, the dramatic arc never seems satisfying enough, although Rachel Portman's beautiful score weaves a melodic rainbow through the exposition
August 26, 2011
Even the hardest-hearted will surely shed a tear.
August 26, 2011
Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess embark on the longest courtship in movie history in a weepy based on David Nicholls' gazillion-selling novel.
August 26, 2011
Despite everything, it's an able adaptation capturing the spirit of the original novel, which fans will still enjoy.
August 26, 2011
Another on that increasingly frustrating list of movies that I liked, but wanted to love and didn't quite.
August 26, 2011
Everything about it is intended to let us know that the emotions in play here are real and nothing to be trifled with. Unfortunately, it all centers around a relationship that's not so easy to root for.
August 25, 2011
A pleasant, occasionally amusing, tragically tasteful romantic drama.
August 25, 2011
You'll likely be wiping away the tears.
