"It's hard to keep stopping and starting"
5 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like Crazy isn't a perfect film, but it's a refreshingly personal one. Though it has a questionable screenplay and some awkward editing, the genuine emotion in every scene is palpable. Yelchin and Jones give the film their all: their romance is believable yet they bravely portray their flaws as well - perhaps so that we can relate to them better, so we can find ourselves in their mistakes and learn from their downfalls.

There are some issues - the editing can be choppy, some lines sound like they came from a 7th grader, and the film isn't nearly as long as it should be. It's hard to be sad about their separation when they're only separated for 5 minutes at a time. In spite of the occasional clunkiness, however, the film works because of the commitment to the characters, the genuine romance, and the tearjerkingly beautiful moments of pure, human emotion.
