Format: DVD
I am a male in my late 20s. I've never heard of the book One Day is based on, and just went along with my girlfriend to see it (based on seeing the trailer it seemed light and 'inoffensive' at best). I was surprised at how much of an effect it had on me. It is a bitter-sweet story of two people who strike up a relationship while at Uni, but never quite get together. The film then follows them through the next 20 or so years, dropping into their lives on the same day each year.

Despite the first reviewer's opinion that he found the central relationship hard to buy, I found it very believable - it is easily possible for two people to be great friends, find support in each other, and 'light up' in each other's company, but if they were to have a relationship, it just wouldn't work. So, for me, it was completely realistic, I never thought anything like "oh, what does she see in him?!" or "come on, that's so contrived".

I think both Hathaway and Sturgess did a great job of portraying their characters. Emma slowly transformed from a slightly 'spiky' girl with a bit of a self esteem problem to a more confident young woman with life experience. Dexter is a carefree, quite irresponsible young man who gets sucked into the world of TV fame that distances him from the people who love him, and ultimately grinds him down into a convenient relationship. And yet, even as they change (and if anything, diverge from each other) over the years, something remains to draw them back together. Don't get me wrong, this is far less soppy than it sounds - and in fact I thought the film got the balance between 'emotional', funny and serious scenes mostly just right, although a couple felt perhaps too short.

In the end, how much it appeals will probably depend on how much you identify with what happens. For me, several themes struck quite a chord, and I walked out of the cinema feeling that it was definitely a "good film". And that's as much psychoanalysis as is necessary!

The book One Day is very emotionally moving and is generally a real page turner. I remember it being the first book I got on my Kindle and I took every free moment I could to read it. Today, it remains one of my favourite books.

The film, however, is terrible. I had high hopes for it after reading that the author of the book did the script, and indeed I watched a film adaption of another of his books and found it quite good, but with One Day I felt the emotional depth was gone and the whole thing was dull. They even made the end obvious right from the first scene too, no idea why they felt that was necessary.

I urge you to read the book. The book is amazing. But don't bother wasting your life with this disappointment of a movie adaptation.

Format: DVD
Whilst the movie gets 5 stars for being so close and 'faithful' to the book - it's this faithful adaptation which ultimately makes this film watchable, but not entirely enjoyable as the book was to read. The film tries to squeeze everything from the book into it, and so whilst the viewer is practically given a summary for each chapter via movie, it is just that - a summary. There isn't enough time allowed for the emotional turmoil to truly be felt, and for the romance to blossom.

The film basically just puts the viewer into a scene and we have to play catch up on how in the last scene they weren't really friends, and now they're really close. The second half of the film is much better than the first in that it goes into more emotional depth, capturing the sadness of the circumstances, but the first half basically feels like it was made to placate the loyal fans by putting as much of the book into the movie as possible. If the movie had been extended, maybe made it double the length that it was I think that it would have recieved higher reviews from critics as it would have given the audience a chance to fall in love not only with the characters, but with the decisions that they make and the lives that they lead. I'd watch it again, but I doubt I'd buy the dvd unless it was on sale.

I pre-ordered the film after reading the book and with such a promising cast I was eager to see the clever, brilliant work of fiction be turned into a blockbuster. But I was bitterly disappointed. Many scenes are rushed, the story does not flow and pivotal moments have been altered. I would recommend reading the book and choosing a better chic flick, for example 500 days of summer.

I went to the cinema to see this first & absolutely loved it! I then bought the DVD & watched it again. I read the book afterwards. The book & the film are slightly different & maybe should have read the book first. I wasn't disappointed though, brilliant film & good to see bits of Edinburgh in it! I would definitely recommend this. I can see me watching this film again.

I prefer One Day as novel than a film adaption. The emotional attachment and connection of the key characters receive a stronger impact in the novel compared to the film. The story journeys back to 1988, where Dexter and Emma acquaint with each other and start to develop a special friendship through a passage of time. The snapshot of the times is too rushed and as a result the film seems to be condensed from the book, as key events are missing. We miss out key nostalgic events, that would have been nice to include as a special rememberance to those special days we grew up to. The chemistry between the characters is great from what is captured, but injustice has been done as it lacks details. A series of brief snapshots filled in the film, without exploring key events sufficently. One Day is an emotional and romantic story, as it about a special friendship that grows as a relationship. The film conveys the feeling of emotional and sadness to a certain degree, but just incomplete and lacks something to blow your mind. There are some variations which are questionable context of the story, as it drifts to new directions than a satisfying conclusion. The script writers should have recaptured the events accurately and that would have stayed in your mind similiar to the events in the novel. I will not fault the acting at all, as it is off the highest standard. I am not a fan of Americans doing a British accent, as Dick Van Dyke laughable cockey accent is one example. In this case, the talented actress Ann Hatheway did a reasonable accent, but there are no trace of nothern accents as it sounds plain English and southern accent. I will remember One Day as a brilliant novel than as a brilliant film on basis of my comments. It is an average film and had the potential to be something great. Three stars is a fair reflection. Films never do justice to books in what I have experienced so far. I look forwarded to something special with One Day, but did not meet my expectations fully.
