I think this is what passes for new age profundity

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.

Passive and creepy view of the near future. A little like Stepford Wives and lacking the aggressiveness of Blade Runner. Be prepared for little action and a whole lot of annoying dialog between guy and his operating system girlfriend, Samantha.

this was good for the acting, the story was interesting, and I can see how lonely people could get caught up in this, why do you think phone sex operators do so well ??? not so different from that. and what was with the men's pants ? yuck, so ugly

Not bad to muse around for virtual relationships as Theo did during his pending divorce in this midlife crisis fantasy ... and yes, the pace of the movie was as slow as the title song "The Moon Song".

A movie for the times. J. Phoenix is amazing.

This movie was stupid. I liked the girls voice but this movie went no where! Not sure how or why it received an award.

Explores some fundamental questions about some very human emotions and feelings and uses an AI to do it. From the comments that follow, I guess I can understand why I got the movie as soon as I did. Not for everyone but there are some gems of actors and actresses in this and I find Joaqin Phoenix even charismatic in roles like this. Heard but not seen, Scarlett Johannsen is also worthy as "Samantha."

No charisma, no charm, weird colour scheme... I think there are some interesting ideas, but it never comes together for me. This type of movie you either love or hate. I hated it.

I liked Jonze's The Fall, but this one lost me.

"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.
