I am currently in the process of reading this wonderful love story. I am hoping the movie will own up to the words of Gabriel Garcia Marquez!

I think all the Daytime soaps had better acting and production values then this slob.

I was captured by the great cinematography, good acting, the architecture, the scenery and the nostalgic life style of the times were beautifully portrayed. I enjoyed the movie.

Much better than I expected..Lot of humor and an unusual story line. Javier Bardem is a real find. Can't wait to see "No Country for Old Men" Movie was a change from all the junk we've been seeing.

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I did not agree with the choice of actors, I didn't know if this movie was to be a drama or a comedy. The characters were not developed. The best part of the movie was the last 10 minutes and the scenery. Overall it was a very disappointing movie.

Despite a magnificent performance by Javier Bardem, the film not only falls short of the novel's magic, but fails to generate much of its own. Full Review
Lush, extravagant, sad and touching, Love in the Time of Cholera still feels weirdly insubstantial when all the febrile passion has abated. Like a fever it breaks, passes and is forgotten. Full Review

That, after all these years of playing hard-to-get, the novel has made it to the screen in the form of a plodding, tone-deaf, overripe, overheated Oscar-baiting telenovela smacks of just the kind of deliciously ironic prank an 80-year-old Colombian Nobel laureate could really get behind. Full Review
Newell's rendering of the iconic novel is dull and creatively off-kilter, lacking the surreal magic and robust passion of Mrquez's signature magical realism style and never fully engaging the viewer. Full Review
Newell has followed up a respectable adaptation of a Harry Potter novel with an ignominious translation of something more delicate and literate. It's hard to recommend this movie to anyone except perhaps the MST3K crew. Full Review
