March 7, 2019
It's funny, thoughtful and sweet.
August 14, 2018
Feel-good, genuinely funny, and doesn't try to be anything it's not. A safe and entertaining watch-from-your-couch film.
October 30, 2017
The Rewrite is good fun and gets better as you adjust to its gentle pace and start to appreciate the unshowy quality of Grant's performance.
February 10, 2017
Agreeable and familiar writer's block rom-com.
July 11, 2016
The Rewrite tries so hard to be a knowing fish-out-of-water romcom, when it contains neither romance nor comedy. Any sentimentality or sweetness is completely wrung out within the first half an hour.
February 23, 2016
Hugh Grant's most enjoyable film in some time.
March 31, 2015
Simple, unforced and immensely winning.
February 26, 2015
A full two decades after "Four Weddings and a Funeral," Hugh Grant still does that stammering, understated, witty and dashing thing as well as anyone in the business.
February 25, 2015
As rewrites go, this one represents a decent improvement.
February 20, 2015
Hugh Grant ultimately makes the film an endurable experience, but he can't stop it from being a forgettable one.

Will likely prove one of those hidden cable or Netflix gems you'll be glad you stumbled onto during a random night of channel surfing.

Another Hugh Grant comedy that follows the dots without much wit ...
February 16, 2015
Hugh Grant's latest comedy is as comforting and well-worn as a heavy blanket on a freezing day.
February 16, 2015
Hugh Grant has the best facial expression of bemusement in films.
February 13, 2015
... has some scattered laughs amid the formulaic cuteness, yet ultimately it's too slight and obvious.
February 13, 2015
A funny and charming portrait of a burnt-out, middle-aged screenplay writer
February 13, 2015
Lighthearted, likable romcom has sexual themes, profanity.
February 13, 2015
Great cast. If you love Hugh Grant films, you will want to see this.
February 13, 2015
The Rewrite wants to be a film about the messiness of life but it only has Hollywood clichés to work with.
February 13, 2015
By no means watch this if you're looking for a nourishing cinematic experience. But if your idea of a cozy rom-com is an old Hugh Grant one, this has some cine-comfort-food-carbs for you.
