A winning performance by Sarah Michelle Gellar saves this film from being an utter disaster, and perhaps opens the door for her to take another shot at the romantic comedy genre in the future. But I do have to question her judgment in accepting this role -- any movie which depends on a magic lobster as its key plot device should send up more than a few red flags. To call it "contrived" would be perhaps too great a compliment...how about just "dumb"?
Gellar is a struggling chef trying to keep her mother's failing restaurant open when the insane antics of a magical crab turn her into a sensation. Meanwhile sparks begin to fly with businessman Flannery. The characters are likable and the strange story is pleasant enough, but it's so predictable that you wonder if they even had to write a script. The magical mumbo jumbo is only a mild diversion. 2/4
An extremely enjoyable romance that calls to mind the romantic comedies of the 1950's. Gellar and Flannery have a good chemistry together and really shine in this story. The supporting cast was also very good and complement the story well. This is a great film to watch with your significant other while cuddling.
The ultimate highlight of this movie was seeing the crab. He pinches people yet it's charming in it's own way. Even if he is not real, and a bit cheesy, "you gotta love 'im!" Sure, Tom was very good looking in his little buissness suits and Amanda was a cutie in her flower dress but the crab stole the show. You just can't help laugh when the little guy does his dance and wiggles his fake eyes you. You just can't resist smiling at him in his tux at the end of the movie!
I watch this movie in the cinema and was terrible mistake!Thi is the worste movie that I ever seen.It's so boring and idiot that I couldn't stand.Firs I thought that was going to be a cool romantic comedy, but the film starts to show people fliyng , a lobster singing and jumping with a hat.It's a completely waste of time!Please don't watche!
Does every movie have to be a Titanic to be entertaining? I don't think so. This movie is cute. It's adorable. There's magic, and you don't know how or why. You can't tell if it's really happening to them or just in their minds because they're in love. Sometimes it's good to see something that's a little magical and a lot about the positive side of love. I agree that this would be a good movie for kids, to teach them that love doesn't have to be cruel and abusive...it can be magical and have a happy ending. If you liked Cinderella, you'll like this one too!
If anybody is a hopeless romantic like me then you will love this movie. A great love story with plenty of laughs. Even though the first time I saw it I was a little bit stand-offish but I love it now. I can see all the great scenes and lines that are delivered. Sarah Gellar is a great actress who didn't get the good credit she deserved for this movie. I hope people will realize what a great movie this actually is.
Unfortunately this is not what I consider a good movie.
I don't quite see the purpose of the movie. The plot was thin, predictable and right from the outset was unrealistic. A magic Crab (not sure what the crab was supposed to be). The usual happy ending occurs and in between is 1.5 hrs of silly storyine and shallow characters.
Avoid it as its not worth the effort
This film is anything but irresistible (hence the faulty advertising). Ms. Gellar is just fine and so is the token cute guy, but this movie works soooooo hard at being cute that it just hurts. That plus the fact that the 'magical' segments could have been better done by kids putting on a third-grade play. If you really want to watch Ms. Gellar, turn on BUFFY on tv, or rent one of the SCREAM movies.
This is one of the best romantic movies I have EVER seen. It is very special and some might claim that it is pathetic and makes you do nothing but laugh cause it is so rotten. I disagree! This is NOT just a movie with Flanery to make the girls scream and the boys jealous. This movie is trying to picture a special feeling - love, and the movie does not only succeed, it exceeds what I thought was possible - showing us all what love really is. This movie lets you see the magic that love can be sometimes, it SHOWS you that feeling which you have sometimes but just can't explain. If you like romantic movies like City of Angels, Sleepless in Seattle or French Kiss - THIS is the one you want to see - TONIGHT!
