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.
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 18, 2015
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.
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
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
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.

This fourth collaboration between Hugh Grant and writer-director Marc Lawrence is their best.
February 13, 2015
Before it was done to death, there was something terribly appealing about Grant's heroes, and many of his romantic comedies -- something "The Rewrite" nicely reminds us of.
February 12, 2015
It's far from perfect, but "The Rewrite" is the kind of witty, enjoyable star vehicle in sadly short supply on screens these days.
February 12, 2015
That "The Rewrite," an entirely unsurprising romantic comedy, works as well as it does is entirely due to one factor: Hugh Grant.

Hanging out with Keith and Holly in this kindly, observant movie is a perfectly pleasant way to pass ninety-odd minutes.
