Very cute movie and well written! You think you can predict what happens, but something keeps happening and you doubt yourself. A must see for chick-flick movie lovers (bring tissues though its a tear-jerker...in a romantic way).

Come dite,
Aspiring writer Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) and her fiancé go to Verona for a pre-honeymoon/business trip. He's obsessed with work and leaves poor Sophie to sightsee alone. She visits Juliet's famous house, where for generations lovelorn women have left letters asking for advice in Juliet's brick wall. The locals who answer the letters on Juliet's behalf invite Sophie to join them and her response to a 50-year old letter will change several lives forever.      …

Okay, so I love Amanda and her personality but she could have chosen a better movie selection. She is a good actress and I wish she didn't lower her potential to movies like this. This movie was the cheesiest. You know exactly whats going to happen. Every line in the movie is so cliche and predictable. At the end her love interest falls on the floor and she says something like "Are you okay? Can you move anything?" And he responds with "Only my lips." Like cooome on. It's …

Sweet, simple and silly. If that's what you are looking for, then you should like Letters to Juliet. A couple of girlfriends and I enjoyed an afternoon in a cool theater on a hot day. The Italian countryside washed over us and that alone was worth the price of admission. Gorgeous scenery. The story is sweet as well. Romantics will love the lost letter and the search for love fifty years after it is written, and the adventures on the way. Skeptics may struggle with the moments of lightness and …

A RomCom that's definitely predictable but, manages to weave in interesting characters, an interesting story (I love the idea of people writing letters to Juliet and a group of women answering them), and gorgeous scenery. Overall, a perfect flick to add to your Netflix.

It's amazing how movies work on people. "Letters to Juliet" is a contrived, mushy, predictable story of love and romance, and yet it thoroughly won me over. This is strange given the fact that I'm usually so critical of romances, especially if they're trying to be funny. But unlike the desperate comedy of films like "My Life in Ruins," "27 Dresses," and the newly released "The Back-Up Plan," this movie keeps its humor low key, reserving it for only such moments that it's actually needed. On the …

Sweet romantic comedy.  Beautiful scenery and charming characters.  A young woman heads to Italy with her fiance.  A chance encounter with a group of Italian "Dear Abbys" leads her on an adventure of a lifetime. It was predictable, but that was okay... it's a feel-good fun time.

Gary Winick's 2010 film "Letters to Juliet" contains all the right ingredients to make a fabulously lighthearted romantic comedy that should teach every lover's torch to burn bright. However, the overall combination of beautiful young stars, older, dignified stage and film veterans, captivating scenery and Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers does nothing synergistically other than create a rather bland just-under two hour fare.     The problem has nothing to do with the storyline; …

Wiki

An American girl discovers a love letter that changes her life in this romantic comedy starring Amanda Seyfried and Vanessa Redgrave. The setting is Verona, Italy -- the city where Romeo and Juliet first met. In Verona, there's a wall where the lovelorn leave notes, hoping that Juliet will answer their inquiries about love. Sophie (Seyfried) is part of a team of volunteers who respond to the letters. When Sophie answers a letter from 1957, the woman who wrote it (Redgrave) decides to seek out the one that got away, and romance starts to blossom all around. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Sophie’s fiance, Victor (Gael Garcia Bernal), is about to open an Italian restaurant in downtown New York. To celebrate, the two go on a “pre-honeymoon” to VeronaItaly. Sadly for Sophie, Victor seems too preoccupied in finding the best wines and cheeses for his restaurant and hardly has time for her. While he is out one day, Sophie goes sightseeing and comes across the house where Juliet Capulet supposedly lived and watches in awe as numerous people gather to write letters to Juliet about their loves and post them on Juliet’s wall. Sophie writes of this in her journal for a few hours and sits on a bench, waiting for closing time, to see what becomes of the ...
