Though formulaic and superficial, Under the Tuscan Sun is redeemed by Lane's vibrant performance.

The epitome of what a feel-good movie is supposed to be but rarely is, this one is beautiful to look at and life-affirming to think about, and it doesn't have a pretentious bone in its head.
The movie is sweet but deeply suspect: It's like Lost Horizon re-imagined by a realtor.
... some of the most beautiful photography in any film I've seen this year.
Under the Tuscan Sun pretends to be juicy, but it doesn't allow any dribbles. It purports to make love all over us, but not without laying down lots of paper towels first.
Has about as much in common with Frances Mayes as it does with Willie Mays, but it does have the marvelous Diane Lane.
It is a glorious refreshment to spend time with characters who aren't twenty-something eye bait, someone's virtuous, whiny wife or other reductive archetypes.
Tuscany is so beautiful. This is the kind of movie that makes you want to shout at the actors, "Get out of the way, I can't see the scenery."
"Under the Tuscan Sun" is an amiable film that, in the tradition of escapist fiction, provides a nice, scenic getaway with just enough drama to keep the story from getting stagnant.
Offers Americans the ultimate fantasy vacation. It's a beautiful, sunny, fresh air trip to Europe without the jet lag, language problems, money problems, or any other trivialities.
Not much for teens in this book adaptation.
a romantic abomination wherein the main character's best friend is a pregnant Asian lesbian who comes to Italy to visit and ends up ruining the story's only semi-romantic aspect, and extends its painful length for an extra half-hour in the process.
An enjoyable, entertaining odyssey with beautiful landscapes, a fun mood, and a charming performance from the always sexy Diane Lane.
Diane Lane raises this heart-warming film above average in a very adorable performance that conveys with a lot of sensitivity the pangs of depression and yearning to start over, helping make this the kind of feel-good story that is even more enchanting thanks to the beauty of its locations.
This is a cliched and silly chick flick, but the performances are not too bad, and the scenery is quite nice. It's not terrible, but it's also not really my type of movie. Having been to Tuscany though, I can say this movie actually meant something to me, and hell, it's a bit entertaining, and surprisingly not boring. Again though, this film really didn't stand out for me.
Cliched, but thankfully not too boring. It's been said that the movie is hardly similar to the memoir on which it's based, and that the memoir in itself (which includes recipes for most of the part) is quite boring (why am I not surprised?). Nevertheless, it was a NYT BS for more than 2 years!!! When I finished watching the movie, I was quite disappointed. But when I realized that it's based on such a boring (surely, some people will have a contradictory opinion) memoir, I felt somewhat relieved.
Although (or should is be "Since") the movie had *several* cliches thrown in, and a love story added to heighten the dramatic effect, it still failed to rise above the average fare. Can't recommend.
A nice Chick Flick ! Based on the book by Frances Mayes, "Under The Tuscan Sun" is a refreshing romantic comedy,a must see in my opinion. yes like many others,im sure,I kept waiting for the happily ever after with the man of her dreams,well didnt exactly get that but it does have a pretty happy ending......
I enjoyed it.
