Like Crazy (2011)



Critic Consensus: It has the schmaltzy trappings of my romantic films, but Like Crazy allows its characters to express themselves beyond dialogue, crafting a true, intimate study.

Movie Info

A love story is both a physical and emotional tale, one that can be deeply personal and heartbreaking for an audience to experience. Director Drake Doremus' film Like Crazy beautifully illustrates how your first real love is as thrilling and blissful as it is devastating. When a British college student (Felicity Jones) falls for her American classmate (Anton Yelchin) they embark on a passionate and life-changing journey only to be separated when she violates the terms of her visa. Like Crazy explores how a couple faces the real challenges of being together and of being apart. -- (C) Paramount

I'll admit that my heart broke a little by film's end, as the camera rested on Yelchin and Jones's faraway looks and Stars' sublime "Dead Hearts" flooded the soundtrack.

Felicity Jones shines in Drake Doremus' deceptively simple romance, a refreshing take on an age-old dilemma.

January 29, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It is poignant and moving, and by the time its last, touchingly incandescent final image flickers into darkness I almost couldn't believe all I had been lucky enough to witness.

January 27, 2012 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

A good movie which, if not exactly a masterpiece, at least involves us throughout.

January 27, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Young love's tendresse has seldom seemed quite so irritating as it does in this largely improvised romance...

January 27, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Apart from everything else, Like Crazy is a reminder of the awful fact that all choices are permanent, to some degree. Life cannot be rewound and done over. It's a grownup love story.

Audience Reviews for Like Crazy


The leads are very talented even if not so charismatic (and they don't have a lot of chemistry together), but this is compensated by a mature story told with a lot of conviction and made even more sincere by its dynamic editing that shows well the power of time in a relationship.

Wanted to like this, but it just felt like a real nothing movie. I didn't buy the attraction between the pair, which I guess is a major problem for this genre. I didn't really care if they got together or not. To me, they were both cheaters anyhow, so can't have been too madly in love.

I just don't see how anyone really enjoys watching two inconsiderate people hate each other for decades while calling it love. Recently there has been this trend of love stories about people doomed to repeat stupid decisions over and over again, never ending up with the person they are meant to be with. These films are oftentimes badly thought out and have super melodramatic stories that center on immature, useless individuals with little to no characteristics except their own selfishness and inability to commit. This story isn't as longwinded as "One Day" or as large as life as say "The English Patient" but it falls under this umbrella because of the length of their courtship and their eventual decline. Felicity Jones and Anton Yelchin have zero to no chemistry in this, their characters are inane, their acting is over the top, and we jump through time with no explanation, at various points in the story, skewing what's happening on screen. The fact that Jennifer Lawrence shows up in a quick couple scenes is the only thing interesting about this, otherwise this is a clear snooze fest.
