Love, Rosie (2015)



Critic Consensus: Lilly Collins and Sam Claflin are appealing, and they give it their all, but they're undone by Love, Rosie's silly, clichéd storyline.

Movie Info

Since the moment they met at age 5, Rosie (Lily Collins) and Alex (Sam Claflin) have been best friends, facing the highs and lows of growing up side by side. A fleeting shared moment, one missed opportunity, and the decisions that follow send their lives in completely different directions. As each navigates the complexities of life, love, and everything in between, they always find their way back to each other - but is it just friendship, or something more? Based on Cecelia Ahern's bestselling novel, LOVE, ROSIE is a heart-warming, modern comedy-of-errors posing the ultimate question: do we really only get one shot at true love?(C) Film Arcade

Critic Reviews for Love, Rosie

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (23)

As the pair of childhood BFFs, Claflin and Collins are almost charming enough to distract from a confused and childish plot, but Love, Rosie still has a lot of growing up to do.

May 31, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

"Love, Rosie" is one of those annoying movies in which everything would be just fine if the two central characters had a simple conversation that cleared up all their misunderstandings.

February 6, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Love, Rosie's early charm fades by the end, given that, as time (and the movie) wears on, neither Rosie nor Alex get any more mature when it comes to matters of the heart.

February 6, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Constant fuchsia lighting can't make this setup warm.

February 6, 2015 | Full Review…

Do you really want to expose your adolescent daughter to 100 minutes of the beautiful Lily Collins accepting second-best, over and over and over and over and over and over and over again?

February 5, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A visually pleasing film, given to framing the characters in dappled sunlight that peeks through windblown leaves. It's a pity the rest of the project is so poorly executed.

Audience Reviews for Love, Rosie


Audrey-Hepburn-browed Lily Collins has always been a pretty solid actress for me despite her lukewarm public cachet, and yet, she still impressed me by carrying the ever-optimistic Rosie from teenage years through motherhood in charming though grounded fashion. Even though she has a young face, I didn't not believe her as a parent (unlike with Natalie Portman and Tobey Maguire in "Brothers"). Sam Claflin is dependably glassy of eye and taut of lips. This is a somewhat typical best-friends-of-opposite-genders-grapple-with-romantic-feelings movie, and of course, we know Rosie and her faux-beau, Alex, will get together at the end, but not before years of missed connections, awkward wedding toasts, safety-school marriages, and bitter divorces actually melted some cockles of this reviewer's cold, dead heart. The platonic besties friendship was all very reminiscent of Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess's in "One Day" - a movie I also didn't bet on, but was still delightfully surprised by.

I have read the book and I really hated it, so really the movie had to be an improvement. They changed the end, which I was happy about. This is quite a pleasant little movie. Not my favourite ever, but pretty good. Lily Collins, once you get past the brows, has a nice presence onscreen and she makes a good Rosie. There are a few really funny bits, like the party scene where she's on the phone in the elevator asking Alex for help with her "situation". I also liked Ruby, the stroppy best friend. I liked it more than I expected to and I would watch this one again.

Great soundtrack and even though the plot has the usual cliches it has some genuinely funny moments that keep you watching until the inevitable conclusion.
