I love the storyline and I'm a die hard romantic! What can I say? It's silly movie but at times, people in love do silly things! Luckily, people in love always finds a way to work out & the path to their hearts!

I consider myself an equal opportunity viewer of cinema, I will watch just about anything. In contrast, I won't watch everything in the movie theater. Therefore I can remember seeing the trailer for this movie in the theater and thinking "This movie looks stupid" and "money was spent to make this tomfoolery"?

About this movie


The irresistible casting of John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale highlights this predictable romantic comedy, which combines the romantic yearning ofAn Affair to Rememberand the New York charm ofYou've Got Mail. It all begins "a few years ago," when New Yorker Jonathan (Cusack) meets Brit beauty Sara (Beckinsale). They share a few perfect hours together before parting ways, leaving future encounters to her quirky obsession with fate. "A few years later," they're about to marry their respective fiancés (reluctantly, of course), and urgently hoping for destiny to bring them back together. Under the casual direction of Peter Chelsom (barely recovering fromTown & Country), this starry-eyed romance offers no surprises, but it has a comforting familiarity, made warmer by the easy chemistry of the leads, with obligatory best-friend support by Molly Shannon and long-time Cusack pal Jeremy Piven. It's hokey, but die-hard romantics are sure to be forgiving.--Jeff Shannon
