Consensus: Undeniably slight and fluffy, Love Is All You Need is redeemed by its picturesque setting and warm performances by Pierce Brosnan and Trine Dyrholm.

Result: sufficient pleasure.

We've seen enough romantic comedy to know these two are destined to fall for each other, but Bier is that rare filmmaker who can make you wonder if there will actually be a happy ending.

The middle-aged romance between the central characters is a lovely thing, and that makes up for everything.

Pierce Brosnan isn't the only reason to see Love is All You Need. He's merely the best reason to seek out Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier's entertaining if familiar romantic comedy.

Bier is daring to deal with both familial dysfunction and mature romance without painting either in the standard broad strokes.

I lost count of how many times "That's Amore" turned up on the soundtrack, and the comic situations are so stale that the whole thing plays like a Scandinavian Tyler Perry movie.

A simple but luscious romantic movie about a couple for whom love is anything but easy.

Once again, a mislabeling by Flixster. This most certainly is not a documentary or special interest. I suggest a four star partly out of aging sentimentality… More
