The Romantics 2010

The Romantics

Critics Consensus

The Romantics is visually accomplished, but director Galt Niederhoffer's adaptation of her own novel never finds the passion on the page or offers audiences a reason to invest in these limp love affairs.

    The only good qualities about this movie were the excellent cast and the amazing soundtrack. It was quirky in that things happen in this movie that don't normally happen to average people. The song that played while the bride walked down the aisle was a sort of an American Bandstand song you might hear at a pro-football game complete cheerleaders dancing and heavy on the bass drum and stare. There was a beautiful song that played when the groom cheated on his fiance the night before the wedding (Bedouin Soundclash's song, "Brutal Hearts") which I added to my collection as soon as the movie was over. The conclusion is open-ended and I don't like that about movies... I like all loose strings tied. ABSOLUTELY EVERYBODY cheated on their husband/fiance in this movie and no one seemed to care, either. It was annoying. That doesn't happen in real life. In real life, people get upset. It would have only got one star for the storyline but I give it an extra half a star for the good music and performances.

    Watched half of this on the plane. Character and plot development were both hazy, annoying, pretentious and unconvincing. The best thing I got out of this was watching Josh Duhamel be sexy for an hour and adding the sultry Bedouin Soundclash song, "Brutal Hearts" to my library.

    It's an all-star cast crammed into a movie that should've never made it off of the pages of the book and onto the silver screen.
