Love, Rosie Movie Review

Updated on March 9, 2015

Before I watched

Tonight I was kind of in the mood for a romance movie, so I browsed through a few movies and found Love, Rosie. I decided to check it out, because it had a lot of good reviews and I love both Lily Collins and Sam Claflin. The movie is based off of Cecelia Ahern's novel Where Rainbows End. I didn't read the book, so I can't compare the novel and the movie. Apparently there are quite a few people who say that the movie is actually better than the book, which is weird, because it's usually the other way around. Because of these comments, I decided that I'm going to have to order the book, just to compare them and see what everyone's talking about.

Quick Summary

Love, Rosie is about these two best friends Alex and Rosie, the movie takes you through the story of their relationship from their high school days to adulthood. It starts out with these really cute clips of their childhood together, which show you how very platonic they were ever since they were children, then goes into their teenage years. During this time in their lives they pretty much had everything thought out and organized. They both wanted to graduate high school and go to colleges in north America. Everything was so well planed out that they could see their futures through tunnel vision, until the high school dance. Rosie and Alex start talking about a high school dance, but decide not to go together. Alex decides to go with this girl Bethany and Rosie with a boy named Greg. During the dance, Alex stays with Bethany while Rosie gets a private room with Greg.

Rosie has an issue after her and Greg have sex, because she has trouble locating the condom. She rushes to the hospital and takes the morning after pill, but still ends up pregnant. She decides not to tell Alex and just give the baby up for adoption, that is until she gives birth and holds her child for the first time. When she saw her baby she realized that she loves it too much to give it up. Alex starts school in America and Rosie decides to stay in England to raise her daughter.

The birth of her child, Katie, was the biggest thing that separated the two of them, because Katie prevented Rosie from going to college with Alex. The movie takes us through each of their lives, where there are so many unfortunate events that happen to keep them apart, like Rosie marrying Greg or Alex marrying Bethany. We go through the hardships of each of their lives and see how they happen to finally end up together.

Comments about the movie

I thought that in general this was a really cute movie. I don't really watch romance movies that often, but I thought this one was pretty okay. If you're in the mood for a cute romance movie you should watch this. This is definitely one of those "girl's night in" type of movies.

If I had to describe the movie in a couple of words it would be: A giant bubble of sexual tension. There was so much sexual tension in the air I could choke on it. But, I liked how they showed their romance through the years. Even if they weren't dating, they both cared for each other so much, and that was nice to see. I think the whole childhood friends to lovers thing is very sweet. It makes you wish you had that sort of a friendship.

There was this one scene where Rosie goes to yell at Katie to turn the volume of her music down, and Katie just sasses her. For some reason, this scene really stuck out to me. Her mother cared for her so much and sacrificed so much for her, and she just sasses her. It really made my skin crawl. I wanted to go in the movie and smack her for Rosie.

I don't really understand why it took them so long to get together, but people say that in the book they get together at around age fifty or something, so at least they got together earlier than fifty. Watching the movie and reading comparison comments, makes me want to read the novel, so I can judge them for myself.

I wouldn't say that this is my favorite romance movie, but it definitely was entertaining. It also wasn't too cheesy, like how many other romance movies are. I felt like it wasn't overwhelmingly emotional, which was also really refreshing.
