Here's what people are saying...

The Chicago Sun-Times reckons: The potential “ick” factor is played for just the right combination of cringe humor and legit insights...

CNN says: Think of it as one of those movies that really reinforces the adage there are no new ideas, just fresh versions of old ones set to different beats.

Vulture notes: The Idea of You could stand to be a little more indulgent — it allows the real world to rush into its unexpected relationship almost before it gets going — but it’s surprisingly seductive even with its restraint.

Little White Lies writes: Surprisingly watchable – largely thanks to Hathaway and Galitzine.

Variety is a fan, explaining: The Idea of You is glossy and smart, a cut above the slop so often served to its intended audience.

The success of The Idea Of You rounds off what has been a fantastic week for Prime Video - its show Fallout was also revealed to be the second most watched show it has ever produced, with only The Lord Of The Rings beating it.
