Based on a novel written by David Nicholls, the story does not translate well onto the screen.

These characters lack depth, which makes it hard to credit their transformation.

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.

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

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.

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.

The most desperate, cloying weepie seen in many a long time.
August 28, 2011
Thin, superficial and sentimental.

A disaster, a dour When Harry Meets Sally.

Mawkish romance.

If middle-class existentialism is not your cup of tea, no amount of charm and nineties' fashion is going to save this film from seeming pomp.
August 26, 2011
Disbelief is suspended by a thread so fine it is in danger of snapping almost constantly.
August 25, 2011
if you thought the only thing missing from movies based on Nicholas Sparks novels was questionably convincing English accents, "One Day" may be the movie for you.

Movie love stories typically spend most of their running time keeping the lead couple apart until the inevitable final clinch, but 'One Day' takes this strategy to an extreme: It prolongs the sexual tension for almost TWENTY YEARS.

Falling between two stalls, the picture fails to qualify as a romantic comedy but lacks the power and depth of a good romantic drama.
