  • A gentle comedy, offbeat but never cute, never lewd and never going for shortcut laughs that might diminish character. show more

  • At a time when romantic comedies seem to have exhausted unique ideas, along comes Lars, an original, amusing and heartfelt tale sharply written by Nancy Oliver (Six Feet Under). show more

  • It's nothing less than a miracle that the director, Craig Gillespie, and the writer, Nancy Oliver, have been able to make such an endearing, intelligent and tender comedy from a premise that, in other hands, might sustain a five-minute sketch on TV. show more

    Like the delusional Lars, the you need to suspend reality, but once you do, you\'ve got comedy, tragedy, and lots of charm. Bravo for Gossling. He\'s terrific!

    A great movie, albeit far far fetched.

    This movie was adorable, I enjoyed every moment of it. I got a lot of people into the movie so it says something. Seriously considering renting the movie again. Gosling did a wonderful job. Kudos!!!
