Very romantic. Two strangers meet up and somehow along the way they fall in love and never realize it until it's already happened. Wonderful story!

One Fine Soundtrack to One Fine Movie!

"The movie is great. Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney have the chemistry of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan when it comes to romantic comedies. The music to the movie is also great!
Natalie Merchant performs a great, slower version of the original song "One Fine Day" which is also featured on this soundtrack. The Ad Libs' "The Boy From New York City" is just an old school, upbeat, fun song. "For The First Time" is a beautiful song performed by Kenny Loggins. "Mama Said" follows up, performed by The Shirelles, which is an also fun, upbeat, old school type song. Other great songs on this soundtrack feature "Someone Like You" by Shawn Colvin and the original version of "One Fine Day" performed by The Chiffons.
This is a great soundtrack to one of the greatest romantic/comedy movies ever made."
One Fine Day is one fine movie!

"One Fine Day is a sweet romantic comedy starring George Clooney (Syriana) and Michelle Pfeiffer (I Am Sam), and directed by Michael Hoffman (A Midsummer Night's Dream).
The movie takes place in one very outrageous day in New York City, hence the title, as newspaper columnist Jack Taylor, played by Clooney, and architect Melanie Parker, played by Pfeiffer, miss their kids' field trip at school, blame each other, exchange kids so that they can each follow up on their day's work, and end up falling in love.
One Fine Day is one fine movie. It's charming, funny, and it can be enjoyed by men and women alike.
One Fine Day - A Valentine Day Pick

"One Fine Day soundtrack is a collection of modern and oddie romantic tunes. I have to say this CD would be perfect for the loved one on Valentines' Day. All the songs in the CD will pulsate your heart and bring a warm feeling to your flesh. My best favorites are the four tracks:Track 03-For The First Time (Kenny loggins) will definitely be one of the pieces featured in my wedding! "For the first time, when I'm looking in your eyes....I can't believe how much I see...but you're looking back at me....I understand what love is, for the first time." The most romantic moment would be when your special someone sings this song to you. Beautiful tune.Track 07-Have I Told You Lately (Van Morrison) is another favorite in this soundtrack. Van Morrison has put a softer touch to this romantic tune. I must say that I'm somewhat biased because Van Marrison has been one of my favorite artists.Track 09-What A Difference A Day Made (Tony Benett) this is another oddie favorite. It's a pleasant surprise to have found this piece included in a modern love story.Track 14-Suite from One Fine Day. This is the only music score/instrumental in the entire soundtrack. It corresponds to the end credit of the movie. Sort of like a reprise of all the tunes played in the movie. Still heart-touching and captivating.
I appreciate all the songs in the soundtrack. It could be one of the sappiest soundtrack ever released!"
What a great movie!

"I discovered this movie on a Greyhound bus to go stay with my girlfriend out of town, which is 6 hours away (11 by bus). When you're stuck in a bus for 11 hours, anything to pass the time is great. Being a guy that has a soft spot for chick flicks, this movie really surprised me. It's not really all sappy or anything, it's just more taken from real life. There's no unrealistic dialogue. If you are the kind of person that enjoys realism in movies, then this is the movie for you. It has it all.
It has comedy, romance, adventure (kind of). This movie really kind of takes you on a roller coaster ride. The acting in it is brilliant. I give Michelle and George 5 stars for their acting. It helps that it's a great script too, though. The music is fitting to the story. I really like the point in the movie where they put in Van Morrison's Have I Told You Lately, it's so fitting.
To sum up the movie in as least amount of words as possible, I would say the movie is about how a day can seem hectic, full of problems, and just downright stressful. But at the end of the day, it can be looked upon as a great day. You can hate someone at the start of a day, and at the end, fall in love with them.
This movie will have a special meaning to me for a long time, because the day I saw it to me, was exactly like the movie. Stressful, tiring, and long, but in a nutshell it was...ONE FINE DAY!
CLOONEY AND PFEIFFER ARE WONDERFUL TOGETHER!

"This a wonderful film to watch no matter what time of year it is. Melanie, Pfeiffer, is a single mom trying to juggle a time consuming job and a precocious little boy. Jack ,Clooney, is a newspaper reporter and part-time father who not only hasn't grown up but is having problems taking responsibility for is energetic daughter. Where does this lead.. Well, Melanie is suppose to pick up Maggie ,Clooney's daughter, and Jack was suppose to call Melanie to let her know that the plans were changed. Neither have ever met the other due to the fact that they only know of each other through Jack's ex-wife. The unforseen delay causes the children to be late for their school field trip. Now, they both have a busy workday ahead of them and nowhere for the children to stay. This is when the movie starts to heat up. The attraction between Melanie and Jack is apparent, but they both are weary and cynical. The movie spans 24 hours, in which both have to deal with several important issues and eventually learn that your children come first. Oh, and that love is just around the corner. This is a wonderfully fun movie, with a witty dialogue and talented cast."
