Storyline

Steve and Megan, unbeknownst to them, are being guided and "advised" by one of Cupid's caseworkers who has been struggling to get Steve and Megan together for many lifetimes. Cupid might actually have a chance this lifetime if it weren't for John, Megan's old boyfriend who is determined to get her back. Add to this the conflicting advice of Steve's roommate, Nigel and Steve's temptation for Cheryl, a sensual coed, and it begins to look like this is one more lifetime Steve and Megan won't spend together...

"Knot " a bad movie at all, very nice indeed ....and made on a shoestring budget, too
10 November 2007 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Cupid's helper (Tim Roth) has been assigned to bring two people together. Steve (Billy Campbell) is a college lecturer who is working toward a doctorate in Renaissance literature. He is the consummate romantic, having once played Romeo on stage, where he changed the ending to let both of the lovers live! Steve especially loves poetry and has been known to use classic rhymes to woo his women. Megan (Jennifer Grey) is a pediatrician whose most recent boyfriend was an ego-driven fellow doctor. These two attractive people meet at the costume party of close friends and they are smitten. Steve takes Megan out on boat, where he has planned a romantic dinner on a starlit night. They soon become quite close and move in together. But, as Cupid's aid states, they have met in past-lives and, as a couple, have always gone up in smoke. As this is their last chance, will they make it this time? This is really a wonderful movie for those who love romance and, considering its small budget, is even more noteworthy in its success. Roth is great as the envoy for Cupid, making the most of his scenes, and the very handsome Campbell and the lovely Grey are also just right in their roles as the couple of destiny. The remainder of the acting crew is nice, too, with some stars making significant and funny cameos. As for the script, it shows plenty of imagination and refinement while the costumes, sets, and production are fine, too. All romcom fans are urged to get this film immediately, from the store or the internet. It is "knot" an overstatement to say that you will adore this sweet flick.
