Despite holes in the storytelling, Ms. Swank and Ms. Rossum keep it real.

Stephen Holden, New York Times, 2014-10-09

 

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.

Claudia Puig, USA Today, 2014-10-09

 

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.

Pete Vonder Haar, Village Voice, 2014-10-07
