Three years past his divorce, veteran novelist Bill Borgens (Academy Award (R) nominee Greg Kinnear) can't stop obsessing over, let alone spying on, his ex-wife Erica (Academy Award (R) winner Jennifer Connelly), who ignominiously left him for another man. Even as his neighbor-with-benefits, Tricia (Kristen Bell) tries to push him back into the dating pool, he remains blind to anyone else's charms. Meanwhile, his fiercely independent collegiate daughter Samantha (Lily Collins) is publishing her first novel while recoiling at the very thought of first love with a diehard romantic (Logan… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Perfectly adequate airplane reading."
‑ Ethan Alter, Hollywood Reporter
"Although "Stuck in Love" is an indie film, it hews slavishly to Hollywood formulas right down to its comfy Thanksgiving Day ending. It's all so easy, isn't it?"
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Elevated by warm performances and a relatively involving story, this middlebrow indie drama gets pass marks in spite of its generic trappings and lapses into sentimentality. Plus, Lily Collins' eyebrows."
‑ Stephen Carty, Flix Capacitor
"[VIDEO ESSAY] A well blended cocktail of familial connections, aspirations, and separations, "Stuck in Love" is a complex romantic comedy that keeps on giving even when you think it has run its course."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Like many films paying lip service to the world of writing and publishing, Stuck in Love is in a big hurry to get to the good parts"
‑ Christopher Null, Film Racket
"The story, while unsurprising, is also quietly satisfying. Everyone comes to accept some hard truths about themselves."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Just like most romantic comedies (though this is more of a "rom-dram"), Stuck In Love. believes nothing is worthier than refusing to give up after you've been rebuffed in no uncertain terms."
‑ Mike D'Angelo, AV Club
"Highlighted by standout performances by Greg Kinnear and Lily Collins, this film has it all, some humor, some tears, and a lot of truth."
‑ Tony Medley, Tolucan Times
"[Boone's] semiautobiographical film is a confident, at times wonderfully nuanced, and often well-paced rewrite of his own parents' divorce."
‑ Annlee Ellingson, Paste Magazine
"Three writers in one family explore the different shades of love."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Cliched literary trappings come together in "Stuck in Love," but the final product feels more like a footnote than a finished work."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Worthwhile for its fine performances, including the best work that Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Connelly have done in quite a while."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"A little heavy-handed at times, "Stuck in Love" is saved from the maudlin pile by its stellar cast."
‑ Michael A. Smith, MediaMikes
"Familiar tale of indie-suburban angst."
‑ Chris Bumbray, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"Set in a world of resplendent beach homes and scrubbed-clean towns, populated by genetically blessed people who wouldn't know a real concern if it smacked them in the face."
‑ Robert Levin, amNewYork
