Lisa Rosman Time Out Maybe it's this soapy saga's cocktail of the worst of both the Lifetime network and self-consciously quirky indie cinema, but the strong supporting cast (including Jenkins and Blythe Danner) looks downright queasy in every frame. Rated: 1/5 Sep 13, 2016 Full Review Bill Goodykoontz Arizona Republic "Waiting for Forever" evidently is an attempt to portray love as purest when expressed by those who are most innocent, untainted by the ugliness of the real world. But it misses the mark completely, coming off instead as creepy. Rated: 1.5/5 Feb 16, 2011 Full Review Kyle Smith New York Post A drippy romance that makes Nicholas Sparks look like Leo Tolstoy. Rated: 1/4 Feb 4, 2011 Full Review Kevin Carr 7M Pictures It's not a love story. It's a stalker story. Rated: 1/5 Oct 2, 2013 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews Oppressively quirky from start to finish... Rated: 1/4 Jun 17, 2011 Full Review Andy Klein Christian Science Monitor A suggestion to screenwriters: Stop telling stalkers that their passion isn't misplaced and that the girl will come around in the end. It is, and she won't. Rated: D Feb 4, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews

Kausar S This film will be a masterpiece written by Steve Adams. James Keach and his team of producers did an excellent film, and it is admired by hundreds of thousands across the globe. If they screen it now, in 2023, it will become an amazing blockbuster... This was an amazing film! I loved watching it as a teenager, and it has loads of beautiful acting! Amazing! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/03/23 Full Review Steve D It has no idea what it wants to be. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 10/14/23 Full Review Psyealous I have no idea why people rate this so highly and adore this movie so much. This movie is a mess. (spoiler warning) This movie is about a mentally handicapped, schizophrenic, stalker juggler. I can't make that up. It's honestly saddening to see this man try to go through life and not get the help he needs. He is literally traumatized by his parents' accident, made up his own elaborate story as to why they died, and randomly TALKS TO HIS DEAD PARENTS. This is not some romcom cutsies movie it's weird. He follows this poor girl around and for some reason, it's kind of romanticized. He has sort of redemption at the end but why the hell does the girl go back to him after this dude followed her around for YEARS? Tom Sturridge is a good actor, and his existence is the best part of this movie but just because he's good-looking doesn't make this movie good. It's still bad. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/28/22 Full Review Victoria G this is a movie from my emo phase and i think im really into love movies, so i reaaaally liked, if the target was emo teenagers falling in love hehe Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/07/22 Full Review Audience Member best romantic movie i ever seen Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Lets see, I really dont know where to start with this movie, first of all it is not a love story, is a stalker story; Im mean this guy is cleary damage, he acts like he's mentally 5. saying things like:"Jimbo said peachy" really? He doesnt have a job, a place to live,he's selfish enough to not care about others being worry about him just because he's after a girl who doesnt even know anymore but he has idealized this conection with called stalking and is a not ok people! Are we supose to feel conected or sorry about this character ? I feel afraid, c'mon he even speaks with his dead parents. Now, the girl, her career is falling apart, her "love" relationship as well, her father is sick , she looks complety miserable. but instead of showing a character trying to get her ducks in a row the writer decided to go in a diferent direction: why to put yourself together when you can run after a guy who has been following you for years and has no sense of responsability? Sorry not a love story to me but more like a 2 damage young adults with no sense of responsability . Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
