Critic Reviews for The Tunnel of Love

All Critics (4)

Of The Tunnel of Love's sniggery and facetious efforts to make comedy out of childlessness, illegitimacy, frustration and other on the whole un-funny topics this column mercifully leaves me little room to write.

Full of missteps as the cast tries its darnedest to get around a limp screenplay and its unlikable characters.

Apr 20, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

...harmless and inconsequential, never outright funny but occasionally amusing in a low-key manner.

Apr 4, 2009 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

The actors are game, but the film was flat and not a bit funny.

Audience Reviews for The Tunnel of Love


This movie is pretty hilarious for the most part, but it's sometimes kind of annoying and silly too. Overall it's a pretty good romantic comedy, it's fun.
