Just saw this last night, while on a "date"...and I'm glad that I listened to my friends who recommended it. This is a PERFECT date movie. Enough of a romantic comedy to put you in that oh-wouldn't-it-be-great-to-be-in-love mood, but unpredictable and un-corny enough to slip away from the usual Hollywood trappings. I won't ruin it for anyone, but the "linoleum moment" was priceless, and Hope Davis is terrific. I'm renting "The Daytrippers" this weekend.
