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>

Watch it many times, you'll never tire of it
27 January 2005 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Faith (Marisa Tomei) has been told by a gypsy AND a ouija board that she will marry a man named Damon Bradley. When he fails to appear before her 30 birthday, she becomes engaged to a podiatrist. However, she accidentally overhears on the phone that a man named DB may be headed to Venice. Faith hops a plane one hour later and begins a search through Italy for the man of her dreams. But, what about the cute American man she meets on the streets of Rome? One could watch this film 100 times and never tire of it. Tomei and Robert Downey, Jr. give funny, vibrant performances that are unforgettable. The lovely scenery of Italy is definitely a bonus and Bonnie Hunt gives an adorable performance as Faith's sister-in-law, as does Fisher Stevens as her brother. Do you want a movie to watch whenever you need a spirit lifter? For the romantic at heart, this film is a treasure to savor over and over.
