Critic Reviews for Juliet, Naked

All Critics (161) | Top Critics (34)

Juliet, Naked is a story about middle-age disappointment and disillusionment... Even so, the film still somehow plays like an upbeat romcom, squeezing all the humour and optimism it can from such an unpromising premise.

November 2, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's Hawke, though, who inevitably steals the show, tempering Tucker's uselessness with humanity and humility.

Top Critic

Instantly forgettable and decidedly twee.

November 1, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Byrne charmingly shoulders all this, as a wearer of sensible cardigans who needs to push herself back into finding life interesting. But it's Hawke, lounging around in grungy knitwear and yellow shades, who gives the extra value.

November 1, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The film goes nowhere, slowly, entangled in its own not-quite-funny, not-quite-touching, not-quite-anything romcom complications.

October 31, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Even if it's one of the lesser Hornby adaptations, it's still engaging and intelligent about the human condition.
