Despite offering a well-timed look at the realities of the disease, the movie clunkily eschews cinematic creativity for emotional manipulation. Inquisitive ice-bucket challengers, consider yourselves warned.
Marc Snetiker, Entertainment Weekly, 2014-10-11
This well-intentioned weepie never quite rises far enough above its movie-of-the week architecture to hit all its intended emotional pressure points.
Andrew Barker, Variety, 2014-10-10
Nicholas Sparks didn't write You're Not You, but he might as well have, given its familiar disease-of-the-week plot filled with scenic locations and gorgeous people.

Wolfe overplays his hand at almost every key turn.
Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, 2014-10-09
Here's the frustrating thing about You're Not You: Wolfe clearly knows what he's doing and has the actors to pull it off, but he's tasteful to a fault.
Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club, 2014-10-09
Reflecting its wishy-washy title, "You're Not You" is the sort of movie that's not good enough to embrace, but not quite bad enough to dismiss.
Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, 2014-10-08
Predictable, if disappointing, considering the star power.
