Storyline

Sparks fly and cultures collide in this romantic comedy about a casual night of passion that turns into the love of a lifetime. Alex Whitman is a New Yorker sent to Las Vegas to oversee a construction project. There he meets Isabel Fuentes, and some serious chemistry brings them together for one night. But Alex doesn't see Isabel again until three months later, when he learns she is pregnant. On a whim and prayer, he proposes. However, there's more to marriage than a Vegas chapel and an Elvis impersonator, as Alex and Isabel soon learn. Written by Robert Lynch <docrlynch@yahoo.com>

Goofs

Isabel tells Lanie that she hasn't stopped since Nogales. The distance from Nogales to Las Vegas is 472 miles. The 1987 Jeep Wrangler didn't even get 20 MPG highway. And came with either a 15 or 20 gallon fuel tank. Either way, she has to stop before Las Vegas. However, this should not be taken literally. This is a common expression which usually means one has not rested since setting off on a journey. See more »

Quotes

[at the hospital]
Alex Whitman: Are you all right?
Isabel Fuentes: I'm all right.
Alex Whitman: Is the baby okay?
Isabel Fuentes: There is no baby.
Alex Whitman: What?
Isabel Fuentes: Look, Alex, I've been thinking. If I hadn't been pregnant, I wouldn't have gone to your house that night and we wouldn't have gotten married. The baby was the reason for us to be together.
Alex Whitman: That's not true.
Isabel Fuentes: I thought it was fate, but it was just a stupid, superstitious dream, you know? There are no signs, Alex. And we're too different and we will always will be.
Alex Whitman: So, what are you saying?

Very Cute!

Matthew Perry does a great job playing a "Chandler-like" character in this film. Selma Hayek is believable in the movie. Perry's and Hayek's on-screen chemistry work well together in this romantic comedy that has a touch of drama in it.

Matthew Perry is a young man that has been on the "upperwardly mobile" career path without strings or attachments. Perry discovers that what he thought was most important to him - isn't that important after all is said and done.

The cultural differences of Perry and Hayek are illustrated very well in several different scenes. The scene where the couple's parents meet, sharply illustrated their differences and at the same time showed that they had things in common also.

The film work and the colors are beautiful and rich.

I have watched the movie twice, and it was as entertaining and touching the second time as it was the first.
