  • Jonze is a visionary whose lyrical, soulful meditation on relationships of the future cuts to the heart of the way we live now. show more

  • The story is too slender for its two-hour running time, and the pace is lugubrious, as though everyone in front and behind the camera were depressed. But the biggest obstacle is the protagonist (Joaquin Phoenix), who is almost without definition. show more

  • Though set in the future, Her is a timely, soulful and plausible love story. show more

    kinda creepy! sensetive and soulful(weenie) falls in love with his computer. how is this different than watching porn! Samantha was a real woman, protrayed in her , "what did you mean by that !" moment. and of course the , "It's not you, It's me, " speech. in the end the get dumped by their computers(loosers). I thought they were gonna jump off the roof! An operating system that makes Vista look good!

    Although I might not use words like "lugubrious" and I don't write for a publication with more than 500 readers, I can honestly say that 5 stars on Movie|Fone always means 1 star for me. I would like to say I'd give it 0 stars if I could but that would be like saying I wish my amp went to 11.

    This movie was such a bore to watch. I kept on waiting for it to get interesting...but it never did. After I woke up from a 10 minute snooze, I realized my pepsi had leaked all over my pants. That's how bad this movie really was. Save your money. Go see the Godfather!
