Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""Waiting for Forever" evidently is an attempt to portray love as purest when expressed by those who are most innocent, untainted by the ugliness of the real world. But it misses the mark completely, coming off instead as creepy."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"More often than not, I felt suffocated by the gaseous sentimentality and lightheadedness of a story that drops in subplots that it can't begin to develop."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"It's not a love story. It's a stalker story."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"As annoyingly nonsensical as its title, this film makes a would-be compassionate case for-wait for it-stalkers."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"When not indulging in nostalgic flipbook-style flashbacks, director Keach shoots his material with sub-sitcom flatness, and regularly returns to the indie-balladeer well to amplify the mawkishness."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"A drippy romance that makes Nicholas Sparks look like Leo Tolstoy."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Director James Keach's movie is so annoyingly dipsy-doodle that TV veteran Bilson, trying hard to look haunted and angsty, is boxed in."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Oppressively quirky from start to finish..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A refreshingly pure, honest and original love story."
‑ Pete Hammond, Boxoffice Magazine
"With "Waiting for Forever," an insipid contemporary fairy tale about a lovestruck young vagabond shadowing a childhood sweetheart he can't bring himself to approach, we get stalking, juggling and cancer. Happy Valentine's Day!"
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"Waiting for Forever isn't just bad; it's fascinatingly bad."
‑ James Rocchi, MSN Movies
"A suggestion to screenwriters: Stop telling stalkers that their passion isn't misplaced and that the girl will come around in the end. It is, and she won't."
‑ Andy Klein, Christian Science Monitor
"If your idea of a great Valentine's Day is to ring up your secret beloved and breathe heavily into the phone, this is the movie for you."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Movieline
