Movie Info

A simple Valentine's Day card leads a couple to ponder the strength of their love in this romantic comedy starring Jennifer Love Hewitt, Dougray Scott, and Jim Mistry. When Alice (Hewitt) receives a Valentine's Day card from her husband Sam (Mistry)'s best friend, Archie (Scott) -- who harbors a lingering crush on his lifelong pal's beautiful wife -- she mistakenly assumes it to be from her husband, and playfully responds with an anonymous card of her own. Suspicions rise however, when Sam hides the anonymous card from his wife and she begins to suspect that he may have a secret mistress. Could a simple prank have the power to unravel years of marital bliss and shake the foundation of Alice and Sam's loving relationship, or will Sam's lovelorn pal Archie be able to help his old friend save his marriage despite his growing feelings for Alice?

Critic Reviews for Truth About Love

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

while Dougray Scott is a viable romantic alternative, he's absent from too much of the film, leaving Alice to discover 'The Truth About Love' long after we all stopped caring.

Top Critic

The film is silly when it should be sexy, witless when trying to be funny. Everyone involved is probably deeply embarrassed to be associated with it.

Sunday Times (UK)

An awkward, last-minute romantic dash to Bristol's Temple Meads station in the style of Richard Curtis only serves to underline the air of creative bankruptcy.

Daily Telegraph (UK)

John Hay's film has been on the shelf since 2004, and whoever decided to take it from there has some explaining to do.

Independent (UK)

The Worst Film of 2007 awards race has now been called off.

The truth is, no matter how pretty this picture may be to look at, nothing can conceal its singular lack of humour or heart.

Audience Reviews for Truth About Love

I found this movie to be very entertaining. This is a romantic comedy where a wife wants to find out if her husband is having an affair, so she sends a fake valentine card to her husband pretending to be another woman. She wants to test him and see how far he is willing to go with another woman. During all this she meets her husband's girlfriend and everything becomes very complicated as her husband's best friend declares his love to her. I found this movie to be very charming and like a classic love story. I did not have any expectations for this movie and that's probably the reason for my high rating. I also love Jennifer Lowe-Hewitt's performance in this movie. This is definetily a movie to watch on a rainy day.
