Love, Rosie Review

12 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Christian Ditter

Starring: Lily Collins, Sam Claflin, Christian Cooke, Tamsin Egerton, Suki Waterhouse, Jaime Winstone

Certificate: 15

Running time: 102 minutes

Synopsis: Rosie (Collins) and Alex (Claflin) have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn’t possibly be right for one another…or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.

Adapted from the Cecelia Ahern novel ‘Where Rainbows End’, Love, Rosie is a decade-spanning romantic comedy about friendship, true love and bad timing. For those about to give up there, although it’s admittedly a concept with about as much originality as most boy-meets-girl scenarios, Love, Rosie has several key elements working in its’ favour allowing it to flourish.

The first of these is the screenplay, courtesy of Juliette Towhidi, whose other big screen credit is as co-writer of 2003’s tale of golden oldies Calendar Girls. »

Love, Rosie Review

23 October 2014 4:42 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Based on Celia Ahern's novel Where Rainbow's End, Love, Rosie inhabits the same sphere of inoffensive romantic comedy as the last adaption of her work, P.S., I Love You (what is with them being named after sign-off's in letters?), thankfully free of bad Irish accents, but director Christian Ditter does inject a slightly rougher edge into proceedings, while still ticking off a checklist of romantic cliches. Lily Collins and Sam Claflin play Rosie and Alex, who we find out from the very first frame have being friends since childhood. Over the course of twelve years, from the ages of 18 to 30, we follow the pair through their will they/won't they romance, one that takes in an unplanned pregnancy, failed relationships and one night stands, and different continents While the first act makes you believe this is a irreverent take on the usual romantic comedy formula (throwing in some slightly »

Film Review: 'Love, Rosie'

22 October 2014 4:42 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆Etching another notch on the bedpost of the already crowded ‘will-they-won’t they?’ vein of romantic comedy, Love, Rosie (2014) boasts a fresh-faced cast whose star power will inevitably be bolstered by appearing in this heinious exercise in ignoble triviality. Directed by Christian Ditter and adapted from Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 novel ‘Where Rainbows End’, Love, Rosie is ostensibly the iPhone generation's When Harry Met Sally (1989) - a saccharin-drenched drama that rarely merits the chemistry its central cast ably displays. The film sees Lily Collins plays the titular Rosie opposite Sam Claflin’s Alex, two best friends who’ve grown up together side by side. »

Love, Rosie review: Sam Claflin and Lily Collins's romantic comedy

22 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Christian Ditter; Screenwriter: Juliette Towhdi; Starring: Sam Claflin, Lily Collins, Christian Cooke, Tamsin Egerton, Suki Waterhouse, Jaime Winstone; Running time: 102 mins; Certificate: 15

Will they? Won't they? Can men and women ever just be friends? Are they going to make it to the airport on time? Just about every romantic comedy cliché gets ticked off in Love, Rosie, a new British film based on Cecelia Ahern's novel Where Rainbows End. The destination may never be in doubt, but thanks to likeable performances from stars Lily Collins and Sam Claflin this predictable film has a heart and soul that keeps it watchable for the duration.

The two up-and-coming leads play Alex and Rosie, school pals whose tight bond is more brother/sister than boyfriend/girlfriend. A kiss between them on Rosie's birthday is forgotten thanks to the effects of alcohol, and the duo carry on as normal, making plans to »

Film Review: ‘Love, Rosie’

18 October 2014 3:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A full quarter-century has passed since Nora Ephron deftly articulated the pitfalls of platonic friendship between men and women in “When Harry Met Sally…”. Yet if “Love, Rosie” is to be believed, a whole new generation of adults has arrived at much the same conclusion Ephron did: In the movies, at least, the sex part always gets in the way. A thoroughly likeable English-language debut for German comedy helmer Christian Ditter, this marzipan-sweet adaptation of Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 bestseller “Where Rainbows End” is elevated by vibrant visuals and the winsome chemistry of Lily Collins and Sam Claflin. Cast as childhood BFFs who dance around their true feelings for each other through multiple decades, countries and partners, this inordinately pretty star pairing lends youthful appeal to a rom-com that could also woo the adult chick-lit crowd.

With its twelve-year narrative timeframe, comfy middle-class Britishisms and sparky pairing of striving, pure-hearted girl and raffish, »
