Known for comedy, Rogen and Silverman are the film's most delightful surprises, and their performances shine.

As memorable as it is insightful, Take This Waltz is one of the best films of the year.

Take This Waltz is an unusually kind film about infidelity -- not because it sidesteps or shortchanges heartbreak, but because it doesn't let any one of its characters bear the full burden of blame.
75
Suffice it to say, the issues here are bigger than one woman's story.
75
Michelle Williams is a beautiful moper.
75
There is a lot of truth in this portrait of a marriage running out of the will to survive.
75
The actors are excellent. Rogen falls very comfortably into the role of a 29-year-old who has fallen very comfortably into a living thing - a marriage - and stopped working on it.
67
By never standing back from Margot, the movie courts vagueness as well.
50
Williams is hampered by her character's limitations. What results is a mannered tale of an immature, empty vessel.
40
Is there another actor working today whose face registers the extraordinary range of emotions Michelle Williams can display? Even in a film as false as Sarah Polley's Take This Waltz, her swiftly shifting expressions feel unerringly true.
40
This sophomore feature is a stumble backwards in terms of maturity.
