Movie Reviews

A trip inside the heart
N. Guzman | Guadalajara, MX | 02/28/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is so amazing, it shows how a heart may be healed no matter the difficulties that happened or how past events influenced a present painful situation.

Performings are brilliant, locations are really well chosen, that really make you get into the plot. It's a very nice version of the actual book.

I just love it!"
Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas

"This film is a based on the novel, written by James Patterson of the same name. It's clearly from beginning to end dominated by then Christina Applegate's husband Jonathan Schaech (plays Matt Harrison) and Kathleen Ross Perkins (Kate Wilkinson), with Christina Applegate (Suzanne Bedford, Matt's original wife) completing the ensemble. Primarily placed in contemporary Marth's Vinyard, and having reasonable production values, Suzanne (new town doctor) and Matt (town handyman, house-painter and self-effacing unpublished writer) basically have a peanut butter and jelly style romance, lights-out sex (!#$%$@!), get married and have a baby in that order. Jumping ahead a few years, Matt, who is completely depressed, somehow finds the initiative and has the incredible luck to make it big with a New York publishing house. He then is quickly lassoed by his desperately lonely editor, Kate, who falls in love with him at their first luncheon---even before they're served water, I think. But don't worry, this technically doesn't create a classic love-triangle. Whew! This does get complex. So forget about the plot...

Fundamentally, it's a constant swing between the present and the past, with about twenty, best-fit-possible, flash-backs. Plus, Kathleen Ross Perkins provides a stunning anchor performance. I think Jonathan did his best to play a manic-depressive but he was probably just too confused as to whether he was playing the "then-now-past", "recent-forgotten-past", "historical-past", "recent-future", "present-time-now-timeline", "future-future-present", or what....which would be confusing for anyone!"
Recommended for romantics or anyone who wants to cry...

"I rented this because it looked like a good old-fashioned romantic love story, and I love Christina Applegate. Also, Johnathan Schaech is pretty hot in the smoldering sense. It was completely romantic and chick-flicky, and I really liked it. It's all about letting go of the past and letting yourself heal to move on in life and love.

The whole movie has kind of an overcast sadness, and that's what made me want to watch till the end because I was sure it had to get better. It was light and humorous in several places, though...seeing the romance bloom between Suzanne and Matt was nice and sweet. I got attached to them as a couple.

I had a hard time accepting Matt's new love interest because of Matt and Suzanne's relationship, but in the last scene she redeems herself with the last line of the movie. I do think the ending was kind of rushed, but it did suit the story.

Recommended for romantics everywhere. I've read reviews on here that say it's a pretty good version of the story brought to life so I'm going to read the book soon so I can compare myself."

"Very touching movie. If I read a book then see the movie I usually like the book way more, however this is a case that I would have to say I can't decide which is better...the book or movie. I would say you can't go wrong with the movie or book."
