Luckily the nice Leonardo da Vinci is on hand to help all round. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

THE MOST ROMANTIC MOVIE :o)
4 July 2004 | by (NEW YORK CITY) – See all my reviews

I just love it from the first time I saw Ever After. I have always been very romantic on where I have also dream of a prince and still waiting for one. Isn't great to love someone with out boundaries? We all look for a twin soul who which you would like to share the real you with one another. It is just a great movie. I believe that Drew Barrymore gave life to that love we all would like to feel for one day for someone an impossible love combined with pain and real truth of the heart. All of our realities we live through romantic movies are created by dreams and hopes but we can make it happen by just letting go and accepting one another in our future dreams. Barrymore has a great personality and sense of humor I hope the best for her and she will go far now because she already made her dreams come truth. now is our turn to make ours come truth :O)
