Young Helen is fired from her job at a PR company, and when the sliding doors of the tube car close on her, we start to see what would have happened if she'd made the train, and if she hadn't. Written by
Near the beginning of the movie, as James is leaving the building from which Helen emerges just behind him, he is wearing a long coat. When we see him next, in the tube station, his coat is missing. See more »
[Helen tells James her boyfriend is cheating]
Well, if it makes you feel any better... do you see that bloke over there?
[Points to his friend at the end of the bar]
Not only does he own a personalized matching set of crocodile-skin luggage, but his favorite TV program is Baywatch. So you see there's always someone sadder than you.
[Helen starts to cry]
Do you love him?
No, I could never love a Baywatch fan.

Gwyneth Paltrow plays Helen Quilley, she works in Public Relations and is dating an idiot who is cheating on her (come on guys, would you?) After losing her job she heads home early, and the film then follows two Parallel realities, that cross over and intertwine in a very clever manner, that adds a great deal to the movies quality.
One way, she gets home and finds him cheating, and the other way she is mugged and her boyfriend gets away with it, at least for now.
In this wonderfully charming romantic comedy, great performances from, Paltrow, Lynch, Hannah and Tripplehorn plus a good script and some good laughs all add up to a movie i simply don't tire of. I can't quite put my finger on what it is, i just love it.
9/10 and a must for Paltrow Fans
