Critic Reviews of "The Words"Stephen Whitty Newark Star-LedgerSeptember 07, 2012
A mostly middling drama.Christopher Orr The AtlanticSeptember 07, 2012
The story-within-a-story-within-a-story is so slight and inconsequential, like the tiniest of a set of Russian nesting dolls, that we may be forgiven for letting our minds wander toward bedtime and tomorrow's errands.Drew Hunt Chicago ReaderSeptember 07, 2012
The premise is ambitious -- if not a little hokey -- but the meager themes of ephemeral authorship and constructed realities aren't exactly revelatory.Lou Lumenick New York PostSeptember 07, 2012
Bradley Cooper's funniest movie since "The Hangover" - unfortunately, unintentionally this time ...Adam Litovitz Globe and MailSeptember 07, 2012
This film's layered storytelling lacks the fluidity, grace, or good humour, to pull off its conceit.Frank Lovece NewsdaySeptember 07, 2012
Romanticized claptrap.J. Olson CinemixtapeApril 17, 2016
"The Words" is an elegant piece of entertainment, replete with an understated but sweeping score, unexpected period piece vignettes, and melodramatic but universal themes.David Nusair Reel Film ReviewsJanuary 03, 2016
The Words is a solid drama that's anchored by one of Cooper's very best performances...Eric D. Snider EricDSnider.comJuly 17, 2013
This tedious and needlessly convoluted drama ... just meanders aimlessly.Will Leitch DeadspinJune 23, 2013
A movie about a bad author who steals the book of a good author, and I'm pretty certain that The Words, if pressed, wouldn't be able to tell the difference.Al Alexander The Patriot LedgerMay 26, 2013
It's nothing you haven't seen before in films about struggling artists spending more time obsessing than working.Ken McIntyre Total FilmMay 02, 2013
Its long, dry patches of colourless storytelling suggest it makes more sense as a book, one to read before you fall asleep to dream of better movies.
