Critic Reviews for The Half of It

All Critics (99) | Top Critics (32) | Fresh (96) | Rotten (3)

  • The Half Of It is a likeable if not especially memorable entry into the teen romantic-comedy genre - but it gains most of its merit through its sensitive depiction of outsiderdom and self-acceptance.

  • The idea of a teenage version of Cyrano de Bergerac seems to lend itself to pure romantic fluff, but Wu imbues it with incredible depth and consideration.

  • It's a wistful charmer.

  • The Half of It might feel tame in comparison, but it is just as genuine.

    December 30, 2020 | Full Review…
  • What does finding "the one" even mean? It's a big question with a multitude of answers and Alice Wu's examination of just that is powerful enough to encourage one to make a bold step for the better, no matter their definition of "the one."

    May 14, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • The Half of It respects its characters and its viewers alike, delivering a love story that finds as much meaning in a platonic relationship as a romantic one.
