“..This sappy, time-traveling love story seems instead as if it sprang from the pages of a Harlequin romance..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..the sparks between Farrell and Brown Findlay are undeniable, but "Winter's Tale" gives us too little of their love story, opting instead to lose itself in magical mumbo-jumbo while at the same time trying to keep one foot in the real, recognizable world..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]
0.5 of 4

“..sure, it's a movie aimed at a Valentine's Day audience, but this is like breaking your tooth while crunching down hard on a cinnamon heart..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..some of Winter's Tale is just flat-out pretty enough to work..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]
2 of 5

“..it's a heavy-handed piece of quirky melodrama told with broad strokes and plenty of artificiality. There's just enough sensuality to pique the interest of said target audience, but nothing remotely moving for anyone that hasn't yet shed their virginity..”
by Cole Smithey [ColeSmithey.com]
“..is a movie rife with mysterious and unexplainable phenomena - elusive supernatural occurrences that its characters insist on describing as miracles..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
“..an ineffectual account of an eternal love..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
