We gave it a B+

In Return to Me, a far-fetched, yet winning, old-fashioned romance from director-cowriter-costar Bonnie Hunt, a widower (Duchovny) and the transplant patient who got his late wife’s heart (Driver) unwittingly find — and then almost lose — each other. If you can overlook the contrived climax and focus instead on the postcard vistas of Chicago and Rome and the stars’ puppy-dog charm, you’ll feel like a valentine’s been delivered straight into your living room. B+
