    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Jones is a marvel. Sundance couldn't get enough of her. You won't, either. Her performance grabs hold and won't let go. show more

    The actors keep their clothes on, but everything else is naked in Like Crazy, a romantic drama that makes other romantic films look obvious and calculated in comparison. show more

    Doremus' elegant filmmaking is key to the appeal of the film, but it would never work as superbly without the wonderfully natural, believable performances and powerful chemistry of the lead actors. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Like Crazy develops slowly, and threatens at first to be just another movie about beautiful young people in the Age of Fraught Relationships. It's much more than that, though. Without belaboring any issues, it speaks volumes about fear of commitment. show more

    The trailer for Like Crazy is one of the best of the year, and I couldn't wait to see the movie that inspired it. Turns out, the film itself plays like one long trailer, a collection of moments and montages that hint at, but never quite achieve, a fully realized whole. show more

    A beautifully realized drama that gets to the essence of what it's like to be young, confused and in love. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Like Crazy is a well-made film. The scenes showing Jacob and Anna falling in love have a freshness, and I learn Doremus handed his actors an outline and together they improvised every scene. Some of the whispered endearments under the sheets are delightful. show more

    It's entirely possible, maybe even inevitable, that Like Crazy will win over a good many moviegoers despite its bouts of semipreciousness. In the end, I was one of them. show more

    An awful movie about a “doomed relationship”. The critics including Kenneth Turan and Joe Morgenstern gush over it, but we never got the memo. The action moves at the speed of water turning to ice, filled with long shots gazing into each other’s eyes, and ends randomly with a shower scene in which both partners flash back to the beginning of their tryst. Yawn. Save the $27 and rent “Last Tango in Paris” or “9Â
