Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Winter's Tale is preposterous twaddle. Use it as a date movie only if you don't love the one you're with.
Rotten: Not only is the story of magic, angels, demons and predetermined destiny preposterous, but the characters are also unconvincing and the dialogue sanctimonious.
Rotten: It might all make more sense to fans of the book. But you shouldn't have to have read the book to be able to see and enjoy the movie.
Rotten: On a purely narrative level, Winter's Tale missteps early and often. Its earnestness is its downfall, resulting in opportunities for unintentional humor.

I loved it. I don't care what the critics had to say. It was an enchanting tale from beginning to end. We could all use a miracle every now and then.
What a beautiful movie! I am so impressed with this captivating film. A fantasy twist tied into such an amazing story. Get the Kleenex. Heart warming, lovely film worth watching. Wow!
