Critic Reviews



Based on 5 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com
As domestic summer date movies ("A Good Old Fashioned Orgy"; "The Change-Up") compete for snark and gross-out points, it's a relief to know that the traditional frothy rom-com - sweet-hearted and hopeful, without profanity or sexual gymnastics - is not dead. Outsourced? That's another story.
Though it doesn't exactly have pretensions toward the rhythms of real life, the film does nail the breezy movie feeling of a buffed-and-polished romantic comedy.
Silly and slapsticky, Love in Space is too busy devising absurd set pieces to develop the characters or make their mutual attractions plausible. That makes it much like recent Hollywood rom-coms. It seems Chinese filmmakers have learned more than just a few phrases from American movies.
Slant Magazine
The weightlessness that dominates the film is no special effect.
Love in Space is just what movie fans have been waiting for: a romantic comedy from Communist China.
