Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A keeper of a film, quietly dazzling"
‑ Cath Clarke, Time Out
"Her shares a lot of themes with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, another story about the difficulty of moving on from relationships that once seemed destined to last forever."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
""Her" is the finest writing and directorial endeavor of Spike Jonze's career."
‑ Clayton Davis, AwardsCircuit.com
"Phoenix's performance is imbued with such genuine heartsickness that Theodore's musings on why his marriage fell apart ring of piercing, real-life regret, not break-up bromides."
‑ Melissa Anderson, Artforum
"It's an incredible technological tale about love, human connection, and a question of a higher power."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It's an odd, sad love story, combined with a meditation on technology as an accelerator of social loneliness. Not a small part of it seems to be an allegory of lonely guys and their fear of women."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Delightfully entertaining, if slightly unnerving ..."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"This quirky, clever, thought-provoking film is an all-too-credible prediction of the way humanity is heading, but is also sharply observant of the way we interact with technology, and each other, today."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"'Her' reduces love to a purely intellectual pursuit. The body is oddly irrelevant, the soul absent, reproduction abandoned. The result is dehumanizing. And yet fascinating."
‑ Rebecca Cusey, Patheos
"The only other filmmaker who knows how to make sound, music and moment fit like a fitting of a perfectly suited slipper would be Sofia Coppola. Patience. Trust."
‑ Ray Pride, Newcity
"In a dark theater, surrounded by the wondrous world Jonze creates in Her, it's difficult to avoid getting emotional."
‑ Jessica Herndon, Associated Press
"Her is a wistful, wonderful meditation on where we are and where we might be going."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"A lyrical, deeply felt movie with a surprisingly gentle spirit."
‑ Richard Knight, Windy City Times
"An abundantly earnest look at the pain of loss and the rebirth of new love that somehow feels wholly original and familiar at the same time."
‑ Brad Keefe, Columbus Alive
"If Her is indeed a male fetish fantasy (as one journalist claimed), it's an odd one, presumably aimed at the same men who get a thrill from having their member sheathed in sandpaper."
‑ Ed Whitfield, The Ooh Tray
