"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.

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.

And while the movie gets a bit too cute and cloying at times, especially when it dips into tired sentimentality, Lane carries it all marvelously, lighting up the screen with one of the year's best performances.

En la vida real la gente no suele ser tan impulsiva. Por eso películas como ésta son disfrutables: nos ofrecen la fantasía de lo que sería nuestra vida si nos animáramos.

Desmoronando a partir da metade da projeção, o filme se beneficia apenas da sedutora performance de Lane, da bela fotografia e das maravilhosas locações.

The movie is frothy and light and hasn't a brain in its head, but it's so beautiful to look at and so positive and uplifting, it's hard not to like.

While it starts very well indeed as a kind of blushing Shirley Valentine wannabe, the slide into syrup starts early on.

The only real depth here is in Lane's ability to convey lingering heartache despite having little call to do so from the script.

"Under the Tuscan Sun" goes for the picture postcard look-and-feel and it succeeds admirably, a flighty contrivance that's thin, lightweight, and instantly disposable.
