Jeremy of We Got This Covered wrote, "Every year there seems to be a batch of under-the-radar studio films that are almost passed off as indie films. They’re usually romantic dramas or romantic comedies that take a different approach to such a basic story. Like Crazy is 2011′s version of that story, with the basic premise of guy and girl falling in love and dealing with the pain, sorrow and happiness that comes with relationships. It differs from previous genre entries by utilizing the latest trend of keeping the camera zoomed in and focused on the actors, while practically following them over the shoulder. The film is strongest when it reveals the honesty and acceptance of relationships past their primes, but it can’t help itself from feeling a little too depressing."
