This is a fun, romantic comedy that might be better appreciated by mature thirty somethings. Ashton and Amanda are a good pair, both humorous and easy on the eyes! I liked the story, and can't quite bring myself to let go of my copy yet, as I think it would be one I'd want to watch for a few more years! Great chic flick...or date movie!

Better than I thought it would be
S. Rhodes | 04/30/2005

"When you think of Ashton Kutcher, you're apt to think of a movie like... "Dude Where's My Car?", which in my opinion was not the best of films. It's hard to believe, but a romantic comedy such as this was actually quite enjoyable. It starts off kind of slow, but it becomes absorbing as the movie continues on. Warning to all the guys out there though, this is pretty much a chick flick. I'm a guy, but I happen to enjoy the soft subtle love story every now and then.

The movie begins seven years ago when a man named Oliver (Kutcher) sees a girl named Emily (Amanda Peet) break up with her boyfriend just before a flight to New York. They're both on a flight to New York. When Oliver has to go into the bathroom to clean up, he's followed by Emily. This is the first of several encounters they'll have over the years.

As the two explore New York, they have a chance to get to know one another. A few things in the beginning start off a little too slow, Oliver tries to go after Emily and she contantly shuns him away. Three strikes within the first twenty minutes of the film, and Oliver already strikes out.

Oliver also starts off as the sort of guy no girl in their right mind would want. He still lives with his parents, he has no car, and he's unemployed. The only thing he has is his charm. The two finally decide on a bet that in six years he won't live with his parents and he'll be successful. They drink to it, and Oliver gives up his parents phone number, claiming that when she calls, she won't find him. Throughout the film, those six years will pass.

The film first jumps about three years into the future in which Emily's boyfriend has just walked out on her on New Years. There's a party and she has no one to go with now. Flipping through her phonebook, she comes across Oliver's number and decides to give him a call. This is just the first of several times over the years they'll meet up. Most of the time, however, it's by chance.

Surprisingly, the movie didn't disappoint me. There were some cliches, such as when Oliver gives Emily a serenade in front of all her neighbors, and when Oliver and Emily finally decide they love each other, but then realize that "someone" is getting in the way.

I was also surprised that Ashton Kutcher did a fine acting job. I'm not a Kutcher fan, and I'm used to seeing him in stupid comedies. However, this film was sweet, and he did a good job.

Probably what I didn't like about this movie is that it's supposed to be a romantic comedy, but there aren't a whole lot of funny parts. It has its moments, but they're too few and far between. There's also the fact that the movie is just feels long. Some of the more tender moments are great, but the softer parts seem to be "fillers" to get the movie going more.

It was surprisingly good. If you want a decent love story, this is a good film. Not for comedy fans, and not for your stereotypical man. It IS a "chickflick" so guys, the warning here is, you may not like it."
Bravo! Good movie about 2 people destined to be together

"A lot like Love is a story many people can relate to: From chance encounters with people to seeing someone now and again to the dreaded "I'm engaged" answer, this show takes you on a whirlwind of twists and turns.

This is about 2 young people who meet on an airplane, and begin an off and on relationship of sorts over the course of 7 years. They deny their destiny at times, but eventually fate will have it's way.

Kutcher and Peete are great in their roles. We see Peete again in a similiar role like she had in "Saving Silverman" where she is able to act like she doesn't want to give someone the time of day and is very standoff-ish. The two continue to try and meet up at different times but their interest levels at those times do not always conincide so they never seem to get together for the long haul. There is some progressive scenes showing how they affect one another throughout the course of seven being kucher starting out as an avid photographer and later leaving his camera with her, only for her to pick it up and continue on with the hobby, eventually having a studio out of it.

The beginning is funny, the ending sweet and predictable, and everything in between is, as I said, some path's that we can all relate to when it comes to dating. I loved the movie and strongly recommend it for a rainy sunday afternoon at home..."
Love with the proper stranger
Amanda Richards | Georgetown, Guyana | 12/19/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A meeting of the mile high club
Love with the proper stranger
A friend to call when things are rough
There?s certainly no danger

Except that every time they meet
(Albeit years apart)
It?s always when someone gets dumped
And has a broken heart

Two actors with no chemistry
Still generate some heat
A dude that cannot find his car
Attracts Amanda Peet

More drama than a comedy
But yes, it?s a romance
They should have cut the klutzy parts
To give Kutcher a chance

It?s definitely worth a look
It?s not a waste of money
The actors do the best they can
With a script that isn't funny

Amanda Richards, December 19, 2005
