Stuck in Love Reviews

Andy Lea
Daily Star

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.

The Popcorn Junkie

As dysfunctional as its family of scribblers despite tiny bites of charm from the cast

Slant Magazine

The movie aims for an admirable balance, but fatally upsets that equilibrium in its hurried resolutions.

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

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.

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

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

Little White Lies

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.

This is tedious fare. Best avoided.

Shadows on the Wall

So contrived and tidy that it's not remotely believable.

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?

AV Club

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.

Observer [UK]

The film has its sharp moments but is invariably glib when it comes to literary matters and the relationship between books and life.

Peter Bradshaw
Guardian [UK]

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.

This is London

First-time director Josh Boone gets performances from his cast but fails to make the story about first loves and second chances work.

David Noh
Film Journal International

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.

JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Familiar tale of indie-suburban angst.

Total Film

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.

Stephen Carty
Flix Capacitor

Elevated by warm performances and a relatively involving story, this middlebrow indie drama gets pass marks in spite of its generic trappings and lapses into sentimentality. Plus, Lily Collins' eyebrows.

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