Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Extra-thick vanilla schmalted with just the right amount of raw sugar to summon the awwwws of high school girls."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"If Sweet November were a valentine, it would end up in the dead-letter office."
‑ Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
"So-so Love Story for a new generation."
‑ Beth Pratt, Common Sense Media
"Well, everybody knows November means just one thing to most folks: a big, fat turkey. And guess who's the stuffing?"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"A must-see if only for its last scene, one of the most evocatively filmed finales ever to impart fate upon two lovers."
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
"Should have been called Cloying November."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"There's just too much fantasy here to swallow or take seriously."
‑ Curtis Morgan, Miami Herald
"Pat O'Connor's emotional drama is disappointingly contrived, and while Charlize Theron is decentm Keanu Reeves seems to be lost"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Filmmaking of this caliber means always having to say you're sorry."
‑ Sean Burns, Philadelphia Weekly
"Is it still necrophilia if two corpses have sex with each other?"
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Who on earth could resist Charlize Theron? Well, if she's imitating Sandy Dennis, it's not all that hard."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"O'Connor shamelessly lays on the schmaltz and cliches."
‑ Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
"A hard-to-swallow fantasy."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"In instances like these, you have a certain cliché about a kitchen sink in the back of your mind, but this is probably the first instance where they do throw it in."
‑ Mark Dujsik, Mark Reviews Movies
"A romantic comedy about the emotional makeover of a self-absorbed workaholic man."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
