    As appealingly humanized by Collins and Claflin, Rosie and Alex are sufficiently flawed, three-dimensional beings for their continued attachment to each other to convince.

    Likeable leads and the odd good joke makes this romance an amiable time-passer.

    Love, Rosie doesn't aspire to be anything more than a digestible rom-com trifle. It's a sweet movie about sweet people who are always sweet to each other and it's enough to make one sick on the saccharine.

    A schmaltzy, mildly satisfying Anglo take on the BFFs-to-bedfellows subgenre that’s been seen recently in romantic comedies.

    Whether the material is “Much Ado About Nothing” or “When Harry Met Sally,” if your story requires keeping true loves apart, it is often polite to pass the time with a steady flow of comedy.

    A misguided attempt to spin a nightmare scenario into a cutesy rom-com premise, this British production takes place in a harrowingly claustrophobic world where personal growth ends at age 18, and you meet everyone you’ll ever become friends with in your whole life during high school.

    You can't respect the friendship by denying the facts.

    Definitely a modern love story. The movie covers the story of the title character, Rosie's 12 years of life. From the night when she celebrates her 18th birthday till becomes the 30 year old mother. It's a long journey in the real life, and the movie report only the romance side of the life as it is a romantic comedy. Based on the book named 'Where Rainbow Ends', but lots of changes have been done to make a youthfully celebratible movie for the young generation.

    Usually, the famous romantic dramas are slow, lengthy, and well developed characters. Of course, this one was a romcom, though, much better in many aspect with less emotions and swift pace. About the characters, it was Rosie's perspective and having Alex as a counterpart, the rest are not given much importance other than permits a fair display. Nowadays I kind like Lily Collins, she's cute, maybe it is a crush. But that does not the reason to I like this film, not entirely true. I find it somewhat atypical with many convincing scenes and lines.

    The story is intensifyingly frustrates us as it takes extreme turns all the time just to make a further riddle and complicate. But that is how the screenplay survives or there won't be any story to tell. It might be Rosie's romance, but you don't have to be a woman/girl to enjoy this film. I don't believe such kind of categorisation, because in the earlier time everyone believed animation is for children only and then it proved wrong. So if a man can watch a movie without damaging his brain, losing his eyesight, or becoming paralysed, then I don't see an issue rather making up everything himself. Hope you all enjoy the movie as I did.

Not that it opened old wounds but I had that knot in my stomach watching Alex and Rosie being idiots. As movie goes, I guess it means that they've done something right. I was emotionally involved in the movie, I guess we've all been in this kind of mess, and that's probably the reason why Love, Rosie kind of works. The film takes us back to a place where we don't really want to go because no matter how weak the script seem to be - the life span could have been better handled - I still connected with the film.

    Lily Collins and Sam Claflin have an amazing chemistry on screen, which does not take long to be established in the movie. Their chemistry is there and the audience's history with this kind of complicated relationships is what makes the movie. Collins' performance was better than I expect but she did not look like a mom, not at all, by the end she looked like the Katie's sister. The same goes for Claflin, who blew my mind in The Riot Club, he gave a great performance but he looked the same, it's even hard to believe that time had passed if not for Katie growing up.

    Love, Rosie is a good film, it's easy to connect to it, a very nice romantic comedy.

Aside from the advantage that I did get to see it with my girlfriend, "Love, Rosie" is your average romantic comedy to watch over the summer with the complicated and sometimes annoying chemistry (?) between Alex and Rosie intact.
