    Put this title on your Netflix queue in the first place. Just give your own Mr. Right a break and don't waste your date-night dollars on the big screen.
  2. An ode to romance of the most starry-eyed sort, a sugary paean to quixotic clichés and a film destined to be a guilty pleasure for some (me included, sigh) and the painful price of a relationship for others (so steel yourselves).
  3. García Bernal's irrepressible charm provides a burst of welcome energy with each brief appearance.
  4. This movie believes that true love isn't supposed to be hard. A fine ideal, but it feels as flat as a pizza.

    Vanessa Redgrave bails out this mushy Italian-postcard romance.
  6. 50
    It has humor and a touch of charm, but plainly needed more love, more passion, more Shakespeare.
  7. 50
    It's unapologetic schmaltz, deftly directed by Gary Winick (Tadpole) as if it really meant something.
  8. 50
    Letters to Juliet represents an interesting paradox: it is a movie that is very nearly perfect without being especially good.
  9. 50
    If well done, a film like Letters To Juliet should need no surprises. But it does need more than the postcard-ready vistas against which director Gary Winick (13 Going On 30) frames much of the action.
  10. A squishy-soft romance set to bouncing Italian pop. It's like a long swallow from a bottle of a very sweet wine. Goes down easy, warms the gut, leaves a film of sugar on the teeth.
  11. Letters to Juliet has about half as much Shakespearean content as "Shakes the Clown" and even less sincerity.
  12. 50
    Letters to Juliet comes off as just another movie that makes you long for a trip to Northern Italy-but not with any of these people.
  13. A movie that has more sap than a pine forest.
  14. Bland, predictable picture, whose sole assets are a cute premise, the Italian countryside and the dignity Vanessa Redgrave brings to a part that, on the page, is quite beneath her.

    Jose Rivera and Tim Sullivan's script relentlessly piles on goopy conversation-stoppers like "Do you believe in destiny?" and "I didn't know that true love had an expiration date."
  16. Gary Winick's flat direction does the material no favors: If Egan and Seyfried have any chemistry, it's framed out of their awkwardly staged climactic kisses.
  17. 40
    From its opening montage of Hallmark-worthy kisses to a climactic clinch under the Tuscan sun, Letters to Juliet celebrates synthetic sentiment.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. The script is dreadful; this scene speaks for itself...
    Sophie: "Can you move anything?"
    Charlie: "Only my lips."

    One of the worst films of 2010. Hated it!
