Atom User Reviews for All My Life
It’s a drama rather than a comedy, so call it a rom-dram – and if that phrase seems slightly dismissive, it’s appropriate for a movie that plays up the sentimentality and never escapes the feeling that it’s a light look at a heavy subject.
It has all the gloss of a Pottery Barn catalogue and all the depth of a hang in there greeting card, but if you are in the mood for a sad story about very attractive people learning to get the most out of the time they have, it will do.
Everything about this couple, from the way they pair up to the ways their romance plays out, feels scripted and inorganic, people “acting” like they’re soul mates because that’s in the job description. They know it, and we know it from watching them.
