    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    It's unapologetic schmaltz, deftly directed by Gary Winick (Tadpole) as if it really meant something. show more

    San Francisco Chronicle

    A squishy-soft romance set to bouncing Italian pop. It's like a long swallow from a bottle of a very sweet wine. Goes down easy, warms the gut, leaves a film of sugar on the teeth. show more

    It's a chick flick with a likable premise. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    (It doesn't hurt that Ms. Redgrave gets to play opposite Franco Nero, who was once the love of her life and is the father of her son.) Not even she can transform lines like "Destiny wanted us to meet again." show more

    It's also 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. show more

    García Bernal's irrepressible charm provides a burst of welcome energy with each brief appearance. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Bland, predictable picture, whose sole assets are a cute premise, the Italian countryside and the dignity Vanessa Redgrave brings to a part that, on the page, is quite beneath her. show more

    Ella Taylor NPR

    A witless ninny of a movie about Italy, romantic disillusion, Shakespeare, history, more Italy and getting to "yes" in love and intimacy. show more

    Redgrave puts all she’s got into something other actors might just toss off or throw away. She’s present every moment; this is an actress who doesn’t have a second to waste. show more

    I know Letters to Juliet is a soppy melodrama, and I don’t mind in the least. I know the ending is preordained from the setup. I know the characters are broad and comforting stereotypes. In this case, I simply don’t care. Sometimes we have personal reasons for responding to a film. show more

    Sweet,, sweet movie. Where there is love , there is hope. We need more films like this. I never wanted to see it end. Good acting, directing and filming on location.

    Thiis is a double love story. No nothing offensive just sweet honest love. So nice to injoy with the family even the little ones. Shows customs of other countries,I loved eating out side with tablecloth on a card table morning or evening. The French do the same. Being old is not the end of the feeling of love. Just a very nice love story. Wi

    I love the feel and story of this movie. It's a real charmer and I loved the actors especially miss Redgrave. She's great! I would see it again for sure.

    From the reviews of most of the above nonprofessional critics we will definitely go to see this movie. Professional critics are so jaded they do not know what a good movie or story is. Movies should never be made to please the critics; they don't buy the tickets that fill the seats. I have basically been quite disappointed when I have gone to see what is allegedly a great movie from the critics perspective alone.

    I went to see something else and it was sold out. The second choice was Letter's to Juliet. I am so glad we saw it. It was humorous and light hearted and the characters (actors) were actual believable. Love is magic, it's like fireworks and you feel wonderful and you shouldn't settle for anything less. Loved the movie and will buy it when it comes out. Now I too want to take a trip.

    I loved it! I want to go to Verona now. It was so nice to be able to take my teenage daughter to a movie with no swearing, sex, or violence.
