Page 2 of 3
July 1, 2013
Nicely acted, but a bit all over the place
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
June 24, 2013
Starts sit-comish but as it becomes more complex it takes on a somewhat literary tone.
Full Review | Original Score: B
June 20, 2013
So contrived and tidy that it's not remotely believable.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
June 19, 2013
The movie aims for an admirable balance, but fatally upsets that equilibrium in its hurried resolutions.
June 17, 2013
The film has its sharp moments but is invariably glib when it comes to literary matters and the relationship between books and life.
June 16, 2013
Given that it deals with a spectacularly dysfunctional family, writer-director Josh Boone's romantic comedy-drama Stuck in Love is surprisingly warm-hearted and cosy.
June 14, 2013
This is the heartfelt indie-schmindie piece that The Perks of Being a Wallflower desperately wanted to be but wasn't.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 14, 2013
First-time director Josh Boone gets performances from his cast but fails to make the story about first loves and second chances work.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 14, 2013
writer/director Josh Boone has made a quiet romantic fantasy, complete with downbeat indie soundtrack, which in its own way is as unrealistic as any blockbuster but a perfectly pleasant watch.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 14, 2013
This is tedious fare. Best avoided.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 13, 2013
Hugely watchable from the shock beginning through to the clever mix of end-of-lifecycle events and renewed opportunities ( ... ) a class above what passes for the average romcom today.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 13, 2013
This is Kinnear's best role in a few years, and Connelly's, too: her attempts to win back Collins's stroppy prodigy have an emotional generosity her acting has lacked lately.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 13, 2013
Boone does little to convince that these characters are genuinely sensitive, intellectually superior, or more importantly, that their talents play any real part in alleviating/causing their worldly stresses.
June 13, 2013
Enjoyable and engaging relationship comedy drama enlivened by likeable performances, a strong script and some appealing location work, though it's also a little too pretentious for its own good in places.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 13, 2013
It all plays out a bit like a feature-length episode of Dawson's Creek - pretty teenagers wandering around romantic locations spouting over-written dialogue.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 12, 2013
The sharp edges of the story are sentimentally sanded down; there's a fair bit of slush, and it's a pretty quaint view of what writers and a writer's life are actually like.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 12, 2013
Unfashionably un-cynical, it's a labour of familial love from first-time writer-director Josh Boone whose simple style well serves a story of sweetness and wit.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 11, 2013
A sweet little study of the right royal mess people can make of relationships when they let their own neuroses take over, and a warm tribute to overcoming them.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 20, 2013
As dysfunctional as its family of scribblers despite tiny bites of charm from the cast
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 19, 2013
A sweet tale of love, loss and life with solid performances from a first-rate cast.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
