When Jack and Jill go up the marriage hill, its Jack only that takes a fall
Jack has a beautiful live-in girlfriend named, appropriately, Jill. With Jill paying most of the bills from her steady job, its a wonder Jack decides to call off their impending wedding. However, Jack has his roving eye on a beautiful lady he met at the bookstore. Jill, very hurt, goes to the bookseller's herself for some diverting reading and ends up charmed by an employee named Stephen. They begin to date, even as Jack is arranging encounters with his new lady, too. Yet, Jack's relationship partner tells him frankly that the duration of their affections will be short as she is about to return to her native country. Has Jack made a colossal mistake? This is a fun movie from Canada. Set in lovely Toronto, the characters are all interesting and charming folks. There is another love story going on as well between a waitress, who has lent her ear to both Jack and Jill's tales of woe, and a policeman. With three tales of romance in the air, this is a winner for romcom fans, certainly. But, the offbeat nature of the characters makes it a good choice for couples, too. Just watch Jack, in line at the grocery store, try to explain why he's paying for his order but not the added-on taxes....funny, funny. A small warning: there is a smattering of bad language here and there. Yet, if you are an avid film enthusiast who thinks there's nothing new at the video store or library, try to get this movie into your clutches. Chuckles will erupt at any showing.
