THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHide
[Highly rated reviewer]I'll stick with the trailer, it seems pretty comprehensive. I feel sure there's not much more to be gained by sitting through the whole movie. Seyfried doesn't do it for me and that bloke looks and sounds annoying. Did I say he sounds annoying. Oh I did. Yes, well he looks annoying too.

Enjoyable feel good girlie movieBy ProudMamof3 (4 reviews) , 29 Aug 2012I really did enjoy this film. Funny, cute, romantic, predictable ending (like they all do). I watched it during the day when the kids were napping, whilst the husband was at work as I knew he most defo wouldn't enjoy it.
terribly clichedBy Byanco (19 reviews) , 10 Aug 2012some bits are unreal and stage, most of the time the storyline was boring, predictable and lifeless. however, the underlying themes are touching and the ending is very sweet. suitable for romance lovers and young viewers, but a bore for adults.

More rom than com, but enjoyable sunny filmBy LillyP (29 reviews) , 09 Aug 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]Cheesy rom-com, with some laugh out loud moments. Vanessa Redgrave steals the film, the wooden UK male actor in the lead role drags it down. More rom than com. But really what I loved was the backdrop provided by the oh so gorgeous Italy. Trust me, after watching this film, you will want to go there. Fed up with the UK poor summer weather? Need cheering up on a cold winter's day? Rent this and lust after Italy.
Little rom and plenty of com (but for all the wrong reasons)By GERik (3 reviews) from Tarporley , 05 Aug 2012If this is a romcom then all I can say is there isn't much rom and the com arises mostly for the wrong reasons. Most notably; watching an Aussie actor seriously mangling the English language in an attempt to play an upper class twit, reading Vanessa Redgrave's body language as she tries valiantly to give the script the kiss of life, and predicting the next turn of the plot - which makes teen-mag fiction seem sophisticated. And please........ the ending!!!!
The settings are good, though.
True Love Doesn't Have to End in Death (Like the Star-Crossed Lovers)By HaveMySay (133 reviews) , 20 Jul 2012A film of true love and happiness. A really lovely love story. But, also a drama that questions what true love really is and whether the main character has really found it!
'Letters to Juliet' has two stories of love that become entwined. Firstly we meet Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) who is due to get married to a chef and restaurant owner Victor. They travel to Verona as Victor is in search for products for his restaurant. As Victor is so busy doing this, Sophie gets left alone to her own devices.
Sophie stumbles across a wall of lovelorn letters, and through this meets the 'secretaries of Juliet Capulet'; who reply to all the letters on behalf of Juliet.
We then meet Claire (Vanessa Redgrave) and Charlie (Christopher Egan). Sophie comes across a letter than was written in 1957 by Claire, and Sophie replies to this letter. Claire and Charlie travel to Verona and the 3 characters go in search for Claire's long lost love Lorenzo, who she left behind all those years ago.
This film took me right back to my memories of a holiday in Turkey. We visited Ephesus, where Jesus's mother Mary was meant to have moved to. There was a wall where you could leave wishes on to come true. I of course left one, but can't tell you what it said otherwise it won't come true!
