Nikki Reed co-stars. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The setup never really matures beyond a sentimental teenage fantasy with a TV-caliber climax tacked on ..."
‑ Peter Debruge, Variety
"A nice first step into Whedon's attempt to site his big-budget fantastical ideas into a smaller, more personal film."
‑ Casey Cipriani, Movie Mezzanine
"Whedon is beloved for his work in genre film and television ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), but he excels here with a more intimate story."
‑ Justin Craig,
"It's missing Whedon's trademark zing, but fans who savored the sappier aspects of "Buffy" and "Angel" may find it swoon-worthy."
‑ Eric D. Snider, GeekNation
"In Your Eyes isn't a terrible film, it's just familiar, unchallenging, and generic."
‑ Tasha Robinson, The Dissolve
"At its frequent best ... it provides a potent metaphor for a life-changing relationship, cleverly literalizing the way a new romantic connection can feel like a voice in your head that you never want to stop hearing."
‑ Jesse Hassenger, AV Club
"It feels more like Nicholas Sparks than Joss Whedon."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"Think of it as a rom-com version of The Shining, or Nicholas Sparks on a macro-budget."
‑ Tom Shone, Guardian
"It almost seems like a failed TV pilot where they were planning to tell some really cool stories in the first season, but they never ended up writing those episodes."
‑ Fred Topel, CraveOnline
"Joss Whedon wrote and produced a sweet little supernatural romance for your geeky pleasure, and you don't even have to pirate it: he released it instantly on Vimeo."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"[A] disposable but not entirely unlikable confection that feels like a first-timer's passion project and not the work of an A-list writer of Whedon's stature."
‑ Simon Foster, Screen-Space
"For those unshackled by brittle cynicism and willing to play in an imaginary realm far cuter than anything Joss Whedon has come up with before, then In Your Eyes will be a warmhearted delight."
‑ Drew Taylor, The Playlist
"It's a bit padded, and the ending is trite, but In Your Eyes is a sweetly realized and moving fantasy romance."
‑ Witney Seibold, Nerdist
"It has the perfect balance of humour and tenderness, with just a dash of danger and even melodrama on the side."
‑ Mark Adams, Screen International
"A radiant romantic fantasy."
‑ Kurt Loder, Reason Online
