    The film will feel familiar to anyone who’s sniffled through "Love Story" or "The Fault in Our Stars." It’s better than both.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Kate Lloyd

    The movie manages to shift sensitively from laugh-out-loud moments to tear-jerking scenes, discussing euthanasia on the way. It’s not perfect, but the novel’s five million readers have nothing to worry about: it’s totally loyal to the book (unsurprisingly since Moyes wrote the script).

  • James Berardinelli

    I am by nature a cynic and am easily turned off by manufactured sentiment. I dislike "Terms of Endearment" intensely. That I was fully immersed in this world and invested in the characters’ lives is a testament to the movie’s strength.

    What’s somewhat unique about Jojo Moyes’s weepie, which the writer scripted from her 2012 bestseller, are the provocative dilemmas it explores to coax those tears.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Lauren Chval RedEye

    Clarke and Claflin both turn in acutely human performances, rounding out their characters and sharing palpable chemistry. At the risk of sounding very British, it’s all lovely.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    A first film by theater director Thea Sharrock, it goes down smooth as sherry.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    Me Before You is a sugar-coated romantic bauble, not a gritty documentary. Giving into its pleasures is not for everyone, but its message — live boldly, as the movie’s hashtag encourages — is an admonition that’s awfully hard to argue.

  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Cheerful and efficient, this is the stripey tights of melodramas.

    Time Full Review
  • Joe Dziemianowicz

    The film belongs to Clarke. Her warm and winning star turn lifts this checklist chick flick.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Me Before You isn’t going to win any awards for sophistication in storytelling or direction, but it tenderly reproduces the book’s most iconic scenes, and their tearjerking effect.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    Me Before You is such a wonderfully uncynical movie that it almost doesn’t matter that it isn’t very good.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Kimber Myers

    It’s successful in its aims and will ably bring the book’s readers and romance fans both joy and tears.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Shameless in every way imaginable, Me Before You milks the pathos for all it's worth, but milks the comedy, too.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    Jojo Moyes adapted her own best-selling book, which helps give Me Before You a singular inviting vibe instead of feeling like "The Fault in Our Stars 2."

    USA Today Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    It also doesn't grapple deeply enough with the core questions it raises, settling for telling a sob story that will go down easy at the box office. Still, you can't blame audiences too much for being seduced by two shining young stars in a movie romance that hits the spot, bitter and sweet.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    Luckily, many of the plot’s maudlin pitfalls are greatly mitigated by the film’s utterly infectious leading lady. Emilia Clarke’s performance is winningly immersed in charming gawkiness and heartfelt sincerity. Full Review
  • Kate Clark

    Overall, the film is sweet but often loses impact in its most serious moments by blasting a happy pop soundtrack.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Charles Gant

    Resistance to this delirious romantic tragedy is futile, save for that nagging voice in our head wondering if it really has to be this way.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The only real acting in this movie comes from Janet McTeer and Charles Dance as Will’s aggrieved parents. They bring some ballast to this blubberfest.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Unfortunately, this ultra-glossy romantic drama derived from a best seller twists into very dark territory — a drastic tonal shift that neither its stars nor debuting director, Thea Sharrock, a respected stage veteran, manage with dramatic credibility.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Me Before You is enjoyable in places, and Claflin eventually gives his character some depth beyond simply being angry. But the film exists mostly as a tear-production delivery system.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Me Before You is a beautifully filmed and well-intentioned weeper marred by an unfortunate performance from one of the leads, and a plot development that leaves us more angry and frustrated than moved in the final act.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Me Before You is just a little better than it had to be. It’s not so much better that it escapes being what it is, a sort-of romance, liberally sprinkled with moments of corniness and emotional dishonesty. But ultimately, when it matters, it’s truthful — about the people depicted, and who they are, and what they face.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Clarke has loads of talent, but in Me Before You she's undermined by director Sharrock's technique, and an endless slew of overeager reaction shots (She's clumsy! She's twinkling!) exacerbated by editor John Wilson.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Me Before You is a goofy, giddy doomed romance and female wish-fulfillment fantasy.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    The chemistry between the leads and a few finely etched supporting turns provide welcome counterweight to the movie’s formulaic progression, welcome especially for those who have seen their fair share of entries in the love-story-with-medical-complication subgenre.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Allison Shoemaker

    It’s all too calculated to really have an impact, to grant audiences an honest chance for catharsis.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    These are not good performances, exactly. Clarke is endearing, but verges on mugging. Claflin is at his best when Will gives in to his competitive urges, which happens exactly once.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    There’s gentle manipulation, and then there’s having your arms manacled to a freight train of weepy catharsis, which is roughly the experience awaiting viewers of Me Before You.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    A melodrama with soft-rock ballads where its beating heart should be.

    Variety Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Forget art, or even craft: This is the kind of movie that can’t even get its shameless audience-pandering in order.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Clarke is so insistent on becoming the new adorkable life force that she’s excruciating to watch. The movie makes you admire all the more her restrained power in Game of Thrones, in which her eyebrows are largely stationary.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    This floppy British romance, directed by Thea Sharrock and adapted by Jojo Moyes from her best-selling novel, sits at the point where tedium, ridiculousness and heartfelt sentiment converge, separated by an all-but-imperceptible distance.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Julia Cooper

    Despite its $20-million budget, Me Before You is cheap; and just like a person who has more money than he knows what to do with, this film equates wealth with value and vulnerability with death.

  • Eric Henderson

    It punks its impressionable audience into believing a lie, then punishes them for their foolishness.
