[Boone's] semiautobiographical film is a confident, at times wonderfully nuanced, and often well-paced rewrite of his own parents' divorce.

The story, while unsurprising, is also quietly satisfying. Everyone comes to accept some hard truths about themselves.

Cliched literary trappings come together in "Stuck in Love," but the final product feels more like a footnote than a finished work.

Although "Stuck in Love" is an indie film, it hews slavishly to Hollywood formulas right down to its comfy Thanksgiving Day ending. It's all so easy, isn't it?

Like many films paying lip service to the world of writing and publishing, Stuck in Love is in a big hurry to get to the good parts

Just like most romantic comedies (though this is more of a "rom-dram"), Stuck In Love. believes nothing is worthier than refusing to give up after you've been rebuffed in no uncertain terms.

Set in a world of resplendent beach homes and scrubbed-clean towns, populated by genetically blessed people who wouldn't know a real concern if it smacked them in the face.

Writer-director Josh Boone populates Stuck in Love with smart characters breaking from emotional holding patterns of varying contours.

The movie's not especially urgent or inventive, but it has small moments of grace ...

But all too soon, Boone's questionable taste level and constant, very self-conscious but none-too-deep emphasis on the what, how and why of Writers becomes oppressive and extremely precious.

Immensely likable but a little too tidy in its emotional payoff, the movie benefits from its charming, empathetic ensemble.

Nicely acted, but a bit all over the place

Starts sit-comish but as it becomes more complex it takes on a somewhat literary tone.
