Drama, Romance
Movies like this must appeal to someone … but how? Letters to Juliet isn’t just stupid; it’s a movie that moves in a straight line from a predictable beginning to a predictable ending. Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia!, Dear John) stars as Sophie in this sun-soaked romantic dramedy. While visiting romantic Verona, Italy, she discovers a local custom that involves women writing letters, seeking romantic intervention, to Shakespeare’s Juliet. Quaint. Sophie stumbles onto a hidden 50-year-old letter written by Claire (Vanessa Redgrave) as a teenager. Sophie writes Claire back; apparently, she was easy to track down after all these years. Naturally, Claire has to put her life on hold to travel to Italy over a schoolgirl crush. Oh, and Claire just so happens to have a grandson. Do you think, maybe, that he and Sophie might … nah, that’s too easy, right?

The Coast Halifax Letters to Juliet's love story is a chore Ann Landers for the romantically confused and brokenhearted. by Hillary Titley 05/13/2010
Portland Mercury Ask a Dead Teenager Letters to Juliet: postcard porn by the gondola-load. by Dave Bow 05/13/2010
Charleston City Paper Letters to Juliet is a paper-thin, but harmless little chick flick Nicholas Sparks better watch his back. Because when it comes to melodramatic, bland love stories focused on beautiful teenagers, there's a new sheriff in town. The writing duo of Jose Rivera and Tim Sullivan have created a drama, Letters to Juliet, that could knock Sparks off his sugary, romantic high horse. by Felicia Feaster 05/12/2010
