Storyline

Destiny. Faith (Marisa Tomei) believes that two soul-mates can be united if they find each other. From the Ouija board, she has found the name of her missing half, and it is D-A-M-O-N B-R-A-D-L-E-Y. Later, at the carnival, the fortune teller sees the name Damon Bradley in the Crystal Ball and Faith is convinced. She is told that "You make your own destiny,...don't wait for it to come to you", but she is looking for Damon. 14 years later, she is engaged to a dull podiatrist and plans to marry until she gets a call from one of his classmates who is on his way to Venice, Italy. The classmate is Damon Bradley. Rushing to the airport to see her soul-mate, she misses him and the plane, but decides, then and there, to go after him. So Faith and her sister-in-law Kate both board the next plane for Italy hoping to find her Damon. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Only Downey
21 April 2004 | by (Moline, Illinois) – See all my reviews

I thought Downey was wonderful in this movie! He is so romantic! And sweet. He will do anything to show how much he loves Faith (Tomei); even set her up with her soulmate! Robert Downey, Jr was the real star of this film. I was mesmerized by him whenever he was on camera, and when he wasn't, I kept wondering when he would be back!

Credit to Marisa Tomei as well! She does a great job playing Faith, a woman who follows her 'soulmate' to Italy only to find her true love. Tomei is very pretty in the film and I love the red dress she wears when first meeting Peter (Downey). Some of her best acting comes at the end, when she realizes her feelings and rushes to tell him.

The only bad thing about the movie is that Downey does not appear until 45 minutes into the movie! Did it have to be that long? I know of a few scenes that they could have cut. Other than that, the movie is great. Watch it with someone you love, or even your soulmate.
