Critic Reviews for The Book Of Love
Filled with contrivances, false emotions and even flimsier accents, it strains mightily to tug at our heartstrings while also enticing us with whimsy, and fails on both fronts.
Fo a film thats trying very hard to make you feel, it sure leaves you cold.
Cloyingly sentimental and annoyingly whimsical, director Bill Purple's The Book of Love is one of those movies that all-too-neatly tries to turn grief into personal growth at the audience's expense.
Not even a Justin Timberlake score can lift this sodden collection of forced emotions and overripe indie cliches.
On top of everything else, The Book of Love is an utter bore. No one will care whether Henry gets over the emotional loss of losing his wife or not, or if Millie gets to explore the sea
Audience Reviews for The Book Of Love
Mushy drama dealing with grief and friendship somewhat superficially, but manages to deliver a few very touching punches throughout its run. Timberlake's soundtrack does sound pretty but is used sometimes a little too prominently, telling you exactly how to feel at any given moment. A little more subtlety would have done the film some good, but the cast is pretty convincing. The plot misses a few pretty interesting chances for unexpected twists, but overall the result is still satisfying.
