Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Letters to Juliet, I am happy to report, successfully applies the romantic formula and, as a result, provides a relaxing 105 minutes.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good 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.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average There are worse ways to spend a couple of hours. Set in some stunning locales in Italy, Letters is a guilty pleasure that's lighter on the guilt and heavier on the pleasure.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 176 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:Fantastic Reviews! I would assume that the vast majority of these children are young girls since they are interested in this type of movie.
TEENS:Great reviews from the ladies. Three-quarters of them absolutely loved "Letters to Juliet." The others enjoyed it but didn't love it. Only one person was slightly disappointed. The male reviews are also great, especially considering the type of movie this is. Most enjoyed it very much and no one disliked it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Over half the females loved it and the rest (except one) enjoyed it very much. The one male loved it.
ADULTS:These are GREAT REVIEWS from the ladies. Only a small percentage rated it as low as "Good/Average." For this type of movie, these are actually very good reviews from the guys. A full three-quarters enjoyed "Just Wright" very much.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
A tale of encountering new sparks and rekindling old flames. When Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), a young American, travels to Verona, Italy -- the romantic city where Romeo first met Juliet -- she meets a group of volunteers who respond to letters written to Juliet seeking romantic advice. Sophie finds and answers a letter that has been lost for 50 years, and is stunned when its author Claire (Vanessa Redgrave) arrives in Italy with her handsome but overprotective grandson (Christopher Egan) to find the fiance she left decades before. Fascinated by Claire's quest, Sophie joins them on an adventure through the beautiful hills of Tuscany searching for Claire's long lost Lorenzo. The journey will change their lives forever, as they discover it's never too late to find true love.
