This film was creepy. There are so many levels of icky in this movie. It is a love affair with a machine. Lord help us if this is the waste land we are headed to with our "smart Phones" I see so much of it already its pathetic

I can't remember a movie I have had such a virulent reaction to. Its not real its not real. When the computer pretended to have feeling. You don't have feelings you are a program I almost thru-up. You have to wonder about the people who liked this movie. what times of relationships they have with their toasters

The wistfulness in this movie is large-souled. Theodore may worry that his love for Samantha makes him a freak, but Amy knows that “anybody who loves is a freak.” All this may sound touchy-feely in the worst way, but Jonze is trying to get at how we seek romantic connection in this brave (or not so brave) new world. Like Theodore, he risks looking foolish. Her is set in a futuristic, but plain America in 2025, where a man named Theodore tries to find love after his wife broke up with him. Later, he falls in love with a computer named Samantha, who could change his live forever. My expectations to this movie were rather big, but I can't help saying I'm a bit disappointed. The movie's theme is interesting, but seenbefore. Yeah, we should be critical towards technology and AI, hence we miss the social, interactive context etc. Great performance by Joaquin Phoenix, but the story is slow and pretty predictable. Long, a lot of dialog, little to no action, no special effects which is true, yet.... I was glued to the screen with interest when watching this movie! Thestory is extremely emotional, deep and some of the subject matter is really out there! Amazing movie! Her is an outstanding movie, in part because of its originality, but also because of its execution. And no, Apple’s devices will not have a mind of its own like an OS. Therefore, this is why I hated the film a bit rather than having mixed feelings to it.

I liked it, then I didn't, then I fell asleep.

Spike Jonze's image of the near future is disturbing: all men wear high-waisted long pants and have Selleck moustaches. It's a great concept, but could have used heavier editing, it needs a solid 30 minutes chopped off.

Hands down the best movie in the world, man

An original concept from writer/director Spike Jonze, albeit unorthodox and at times unnerving subject matter.

Watched 10 minutes of this movie .
One word, pathetic.

Interesting premise, and moves surprising well considering the lack of "Action". Felt some empathy for the major characters, but disliked what the majority of people seemed to be like in this version of the future.

This movie was interesting and original, but I cannot say that I really liked it. I thought everything about it was depressing-the characters were depressing, the situations they found themselves in were depressing, their choices were depressing, etc. Even the ending was not a resolution-you have no idea if those 2 people end up getting together or not. Not on my "top10" list.

HER is weird but in a good way. I'm not a fan of Joaquin Phoenix. He seems to revel in the bizarre. However, HER is different but in a heartfelt way. I felt more in touch with this film than I expected. I don't necessarily agree with its premise but in a world where machines and humans interact on a second-to-second basis this film holds a grain of truth. How many of us are in love with our cell phones? Can't live without it? Well, HER just takes it to the next level. Redefining the idea that the heart wants what the heart wants, HER follows Theodore, a professional letter-writer going through a separation. One day, he purchases a new state-of-the-art operating system and finds himself growing more and more attached to it. Meanwhile, he watches the changing relationships around him: a colleague of his who falls in love with a lawyer juxtaposed with his good friend Amy who promptly decides to end her marriage. All these little pieces add up and comment in their own way on the human condition. At times funny but mostly serious, HER is a deep and complicated film about a simple universal: love. If you can get past its quirks, you'll likely enjoy this film. I recommend it.

Theodore: "Sometimes I think I have felt everything I'm ever gonna feel. And from here on out, I'm not gonna feel anything new. Just lesser versions of what I've already felt."

"Falling in love is a crazy thing to do. It's like a socially acceptable form of insanity."

Lyrics of featured song by
Karen O's The Moon Song

I'm lying on the moon
My dear, I'll be there soon
It's a quiet and starry place
Time's we're swallowed up
In space we're here a million miles away

There's things I wish I knew
There's no thing I'd keep from you
It's a dark and shiny place
But with you my dear
I'm safe and we're a million miles away

We’re lying on the moon
It’s a perfect afternoon
Your shadow follows me all day
Making sure that I'm
Okay and we’re a million miles away

Pages of quotes in IMDb:

Theodore: Dear Catherine, I've been sitting here thinking about all the things I wanted to apologize to you for. All the pain we caused each other. Everything I put on you. Everything I needed you to be or needed you to say. I'm sorry for that. I'll always love you 'cause we grew up together and you helped make me who I am. I just wanted you to know there will be a piece of you in me always, and I'm grateful for that. Whatever someone you become, and wherever you are in the world, I'm sending you love. You're my friend to the end. Love, Theodore.
