One, it looked like an entertaining romantic comedy that would be worthwhile.

:) save yourself time and go sleep, actors are fine, story is boring, boring ...

Nick Hornby's novel has been turned into a highly entertaining romantic comedy directed by Jesse Peretz.

Although there are romantic comedies on the subject of music and midlife perspective, this one proves extra eloquent and engaging.

This movie is so mundane, uninteresting and boring.

I fell asleep .

His fiance bored to death with this miserable life next to that idiot.

Neither over the top nor dark, it strikes the right tone of realism and romance despite the formulaic approach of boy meets girl, etc. Rose Byrne's protagonist, Annie, a smart and strong-willed anthropologist and curator at a small museum in a Brit seaside town, has a balanced profile of wit and realism.

) I enjoyed it pretty much from start to finish.

Like anyone obsessed with in a very small slice of life's enormous pizza, Duncan is tedious in the extreme.

Definitely Worth Watching .

I truly enjoyed it.

The script and actors also do a great job of showing the banality of certain periods in your life - doing something you're not exactly thrilled with, whether it's a job or how/where/with whom you live, because you feel obligated or stuck.

Unconventional and very enjoyable .

Interesting and Enjoyable, just not great.

Not funny at all, just boring.

Unexpected, delightful, well acted, great soundtrack.

But it is definitely worth watching for it's simple narrative and direction.

was the initial first perspective of the superfan , and how the Narrative by the by was delivered from the POV of the love interest, very very cool, and finally when all three collide and Ol' boy meets his idol, come on, that was so classic, I actually at one point felt this intense feeling as though the superfan anytime he came near his idol was like meeting Jesus or some superhero figure or something!

It's so very fun and entertaining.

boring

Overall good heartfelt romantic comedy of connection, and timing proving that it can lead to unexpected love and passion causing a new start and beginning for some.

This movie was so boring I fell asleep.

A very enjoyable movie.

To cap it off, as with every movie about a made up rock star we have to endure the most boring mundane tunes as the rockers music.

Sweet, entertaining movie .

And upon a discover that Annie makes of an old album her life changes with communication that leads to connection a meeting of an unlikely and unexpected and uncommon romance.

It's a really fun and warm movie with a bit of unexpected humor, pretty views aaannd Ethan Hawke sexiness!!

The film is an entertaining time throughout, too, and is a pleasant experience on the whole, one that's as predictable as it is confidently crafted.

No, it is not going to win any prize whatsoever, and yet, it is entertaining.

Typically for a romantic comedy, Annie is bored with professor/lover Duncan and finds his scholarly preoccupation with Tucker to be tedious.

Took a chance on this and thoroughly enjoyed it.

There were really more than just a few funny moments and it is a pretty enjoyable film with some nice charme.

An enjoyable, if slightly forgettable, entry into the better half of its genre.

That's great in a book, but in a film it gets dull quickly (for me anyway).

"Juliet, Naked" is one film that's entertaining and somewhat fun as it proves that life and love is unexpected and the path is never easy or straight.

Ethan Hawke does a compelling washed up musician.

But I say it's totally worth the watch for a casual movie night.

I really enjoyed it.

I thought it softened the edges of a very enjoyable Nick Hornby novel.

The ending was typical Hornby but I was left with a bit of an empty feeling and wondering what was the point of it all?

At the end of the movie Tucker meets Annie and finally experiences "agape" and "pragma" - love of the soul and eternal love, expressed beautifully in his new evocative songs.
