One of the most gratitutious movies ever! What a waste of time and money! Sooooo boring and sooooo bad!

If you have any doubts about whether great love exists, The Romantics will change your mind with Katie Holmes (Laurie) and Josh Duhamel (Tom) when it hits theaters in SEPT 10, 2010. This 5-star romantic comedy has an awesome cast that will make you cry, laugh, and walk away a believer! This movie is the next BIG CHILL and a must see! (Cast interviews and review - no spoilers!

The mannerisms and phrasings that Holmes mimics - call it strenuous naturalism - are so recognizably Cruise that instead of establishing Laura's inner conflict she lets the strange life of Katie Holmes (Scientologist starlet, Suri momma, and Cruise-candy) slip onto the screen. Full Review

A middling little movie that tries to trespass on Bergman-Renoir territory and simply isn't adroit enough to pull it off, and because in its weaker moments it's overheated and silly. Full Review

The Romantics is a misnomer. "The Spoiled Melodramatics" would be more accurate. Or better yet, "The Pretentious Ones." Full Review
Dennis Harvey
While in some ways an improvement on the book, this seriocomedy toplining Katie Holmes remains short on truly involving characters or situations, and is likely to spark unflattering comparisons to such vaguely similar, more distinctive films as "Rachel Getting Married" and "Margot at the Wedding."

It's a shame, but perhaps no surprise, that Niederhoffer was unable to transfer her astute vision to the big screen. Full Review
