St. Louis Post-Dispatch

By Calvin Wilson
As memorable as it is insightful, Take This Waltz is one of the best films of the year.

Washington Post

By Michael O'Sullivan
Known for comedy, Rogen and Silverman are the film's most delightful surprises, and their performances shine.

Take This Waltz is an unusually kind film about infidelity -- not because it sidesteps or shortchanges heartbreak, but because it doesn't...

Suffice it to say, the issues here are bigger than one woman's story.

By never standing back from Margot, the movie courts vagueness as well.

The new movie's a visual achievement and a narrative muddle: A color-drenched story of lust, love, and infidelity, it suffers from a...

Williams is hampered by her character's limitations. What results is a mannered tale of an immature, empty vessel.

This sophomore feature is a stumble backwards in terms of maturity.

So so bad

By sebd8078
I don't know why people say this is good. It was painfully slow and Michelle Williams' character is possibly one of the most annoying movie characters ever. Way too long, way too much unnecessary...

TAKE THIS WALTZ

By thedoctor777
This film was a delight and pleasure to watch. Michelle Williams brings an effervescent and quirky woman character to a new height. She gives a fantastic performance. The film moves along a little...

Not TOTALLY boring, but pushes the limit !

By jalbert222
This is not a bad movie, but certainly is not a good one. On a 1 to 10 scale, a solid 5. Only fell alseep twice, then it got slow! Characters are completely devoid of any reason to relate to them....

SKIP THIS DULLARD AND GO TO THE BEACH!!

By Peneflix
Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen star as a couple ("Margot",  "Lou") so devoted to each other that their endearments are flavored with untoward, torturous sentiments. She is aimless, rootless, devoid...

A Pretty Film

I'm a fan of Rogen and Williams so I liked this more than people who aren't fans of these actors might. It's a very pretty film, the scenery and colours are beautiful but it moves along very slowly....

eh...

By BESTMOVIEREVIEWER...EVER
I really wanted to like this movie but I didn't. I just don't buy into the whole "love story" thing that's going on with Margot and Daniel. Margot is a fussy, needy, annoying woman. She won't...

Waltz right on by this movie.

By Kailani-12
If a current movie is also available at the same time for rent on home cable it's probably not going to be a good movie. I knew better and yet I still rented this movie because I like the two actors....

dissapointed!

By mattp183782
Seth Rogen is my favorite actor, I own every movie he's ever been in. And I also love Michelle Williams so I decided to give this movie a shot. I was bored out of my mind the whole time and ready for...

Thank you Seth
