1.5 of 4

“..You don't have to be 13 and a tapioca-brained romantic to enjoy "Letters to Juliet." But it would help..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
2 of 4

“..What light through yonder window breaks? 'Tis the fiery wrath of William Shakespeare, dragged back to this mortal coil to lend his cred to a dreadful chick flick..”
by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
2 of 4

“..Watching art imitate life provides a charm that can't be faked..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
Review rate : C+

“..Scenic, sweet and a bit of a snore, Juliet is ostensibly about the thrill of true love, but lacks the racing pulse of fiery passion..”
by Dezhda Gaubert [E! Online]
4.5 of 5

“..Letters to Juliet may be a tad too predictable for some – less so if you avoid those trailers – but it's a shimmering tribute to the glories of both true love and the Italian countryside..”
by Joy Tipping [Dallas Morning News]
2 of 4

“..Letters to Juliet is easy enough to watch..”
by Stephen Cole [Globe and Mail]
2.5 of 4

“..Letters is a guilty pleasure that's lighter on the guilt and heavier on the pleasure..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
3 of 4

“..It is sweet and sentimental and embraces the fantasy (although it would have worked better without the treacly pop songs on the soundtrack)..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..it is a movie that is very nearly perfect without being especially good..”
by A.O. Scott [NY Times]
Review rate : C

“..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..”
by Keith Phipps [A.V Club]
Review rate : B+

“..Find me a flight to Verona!..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
Review rate : C

“..a purported comedy that had me mentally following minor characters off screen, wondering if their lives might be more interesting than what was happening on it..”
by Gary Thompson [Philadelphia Daily News]
Review rate : B

“..A light-hearted, empty-headed piece of sentimental fluff about love young and old..”
by Tom Long [Detroit News]
3 of 4

“..a case of art imitates life imitates art. If that makes it a tribute to a tribute to a classic, then it is no less enjoyable for that..”
by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer]
3 of 4

“.."Letters to Juliet" is lightweight, certainly, but don't underestimate the pleasurable emotions this film stirs. Even cynics need the occasional feel-good moment..”
by Robert W. Butler [Kansas City Star]
3 of 5

“.."Letters to Juliet" is an ode to romance of the most starry-eyed sort, a sugary paean to quixotic cliches 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)..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
