Stuck in Love (15)

Comedy, Drama

An acclaimed writer, his ex-wife, and their teenaged children come to terms with the complexities of love in all its forms over the course of one tumultuous year.

The critical consensus

It’s no masterpiece, but this is a promising debut from Boone and a good showcase for his entire cast.

***(*)(*)Helen O'Hara, Empire Online, 14/06/2013

Predictable reversals and overwrought melodrama duly ensue as these supposed chroniclers of the human condition spend an age getting to grips with personal dilemmas a child could figure out.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 13/06/2013

The sharp edges of the story are sentimentally sanded down; there's a fair bit of slush, and it's a pretty quaint view of what writers and a writer's life are actually like.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 13/06/2013

[Director Josh Boone's] cast go some way to saving his film.

**(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 14/06/2013

This is tedious fare. Best avoided.

**(*)(*)(*)Rob Carnevale, The List, 14/06/2013

While the film is likeable and the cast are very sympathetic it all feels a little too neat and bloodless.

**(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 14/06/2013

The film has its sharp moments but is invariably glib when it comes to literary matters and the relationship between books and life.
