"Maybe I'm just a sappy romantic, but to be honest, I loved this movie. Oh sure, it has most of the usual cliches, but the point is you don't mind them. You love them. You also love all the characters. Monica Potter is wonderful and proves she can do more than stand next to Robin Williams and Nic Cage and look pretty. Oh she looks beautiful here, but she is also charming, witty, and lovable. The three guys are funny and well acted. The shrink is terrific. This might be a chick flick, but I'm one guy who loved this movie. Don't waste your time with a big studio comedy, go rent this tonight."

"Rented on a whim and with nary an expectation, The Very Thought of You proves surprisingly entertaining. The leads, Joseph Fiennes and Monica Potter, are, of course, sufficiently overly-qualified in the areas of talent and beauty as to make one wonder how they were lured into this quirky, unambitious, yet endearing love story -- all the better for us the viewing audience! The cross-cutting story line is cleverly played out between the various persona inamorata and the past and present tenses. I would agree that character development is not all it _could_ be, but this is more a backhanded compliment than a true criticism: I was sad when the time was up and happily could have sat through 30 or 40 more minutes. Those who would turn their noses at the admittedly implausible premise of love at first sight (amid the busyness of Gatwick Airport?) perhaps have forgotten the adrenaline rush acting upon an instant attraction can produce. I, for one, have never had the courage (or perhaps foolhardiness, considering the times we live in...) to offer a charming stranger a ride in his own car in return for dinner served on a balcony under a starlit night -- but I did instantly love the _idea_ of such a scenario. On behalf of 'sports-loving romantics' everywhere, this flick gets my thumbs-up approval and a goofy smile, as well."
Great romantic comedy

"When I rented The Very Thought of You at my local video store I wasn't expecting much, but what I found was a charming,funny,and romantic movie. Monica Potter and Joseph Feinnes, who play the leads in the movie, are both talented young actors who should be watched. the supporting cast, which includes Rufus Sewel is excellent as well, I also enjoyed how they presented the story so as to cause the watcher to be somewhat surprised at parts. All and all The Very Thought Of You is a movie that I consider a must rent, if not a must buy."
You will fall in love with Joseph Fiennes!!

"Some people might scoff at my 5 star rating of this film, but compared to most movies made today, it is deserved. I initially watched this movie because I am a huge Joseph Fiennes fan, but I loved everything about it. It is a charming love story, the kind that you wish would happen in your own life. Monica Potter is so much like Julia Roberts it's a little weird at first, but she is quite wonderful. Anyway, I have watched this movie quite a few times, and I will more than likely watch it a few more. After all, one can never get enough of Mr. Fiennes!!"
